Fix a Leak week is March 20-26

Learn how to detect and fix simple household leaks before they become high water bills — and earn WaterSaver Rewards in the process.

Minor water leaks like running toilets, dripping faucets and broken irrigation account for a trillion gallons of wasted water every year in the U.S.

That’s why the Environmental Protection Agency’s annual Fix a Leak week aims to help you detect and fix easy household leaks before they become high water bills.

This year SAWS is partnering with Houston Public Works, Dallas Water Utilities, Fort Worth Water, the City of Frisco, North Texas Municipal Water District, and Tarrant Regional Water District to present virtual classes on leak repair with industry professionals.

These webinars are free and eligible for WaterSaver Rewards!
