Did you Know?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates that 1 trillion gallons of water are wasted from residential leaks in the United States every year, equivalent to the annual usage of Los Angeles, Chicago, and Miami combined.

That's why the Public Service Commission of Wisconsin (PSC) is promoting “Fix a Leak Week,” March 18 to 24, 2013, to remind homeowners to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks.  To easily save water (as much as 11,000 gallons/year) and money on your water bill take part in Fix a Leak Week.

Fix a Leak Week is sponsored by the EPA’s WaterSense program as an annual reminder to Americans to check their indoor and outdoor plumbing fixtures for leaks. Common types of leaks found in the average home include leaking toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves – all easily and economically repairable.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has launched a Fix-a Leak page dedicated to consumers.
