HCWA Celebrating Fix a Leak Week
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) will be celebrating the annual Fix-A-Leak Week during the work week of Monday March 19 – Friday March 23, when employees will be stationed in the lobby of the utility’s headquarters to encourage customers coming into the office in that week to find and fix household leaks, which can save water and money on monthly water bills.
HCWA employees will provide displays and demonstrations during office hours of Fix a Leak Week, covering topics such as: leak detection within the HCWA system, tips on how to find and fix leaks around the house, and insight on how to read a water bill to identify consumption spikes that may be due to leaks. In addition, the Authority will give away water conservation kits, while supplies last, and advise customers on the benefits of water efficient or WaterSense appliances and products.
Some of the common sources of household leaks include:
Fix-A-Leak Week is a national event of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense Program, which is a brand to promote a water-efficiency and wise water use message for consumers.
