Zone 7 Water Agency

And Their Retailers



Join us for our fourth year in participating in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program’s Fix a Leak Week. The program aims to use water resources more efficiently, to preserve water for future generations and, to reduce water and wastewater infrastructure costs by reducing unnecessary water consumption. Checking and fixing household plumbing fixtures for leaks inside and outside of the home is a great way to conserve water and save money. You can take the 10 minute WaterSense Challenge using this checklist. More information about what you can do to save water indoors and out is provided on the WaterSense website. Want to share how you’ve saved water during Fix a Leak Week? Use the checklist to look for leaks and if you find one, snap a pic and share with us on Twitter using #Ifixleaks.
