HCWA Customer Appreciation caps off Fix A Leak Week
The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) capped off a very successful Fix-A-Leak Week with a Customer Appreciation that included a cookout and promotional items for guests.
The major benefit to customers from Fix-A-Leak Week were the water conservation kits and leak detection tips given to those stopping by the HCWA Headquarters that week.
HCWA employees also demonstrated how to check your water meter to determine if your home/property has a water leak. HCWA customers also learned valuable insights on how to read your water bill to identify consumption spikes that may be due to leaks. In addition, the Authority advised customers on the benefits of water efficient/WaterSense appliances and products, such as more efficient, low flow toilets and showerheads.
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 water efficiency and wise water use among consumers. This year, Fix-A-Leak Week was recognized nationally within the water industry during the week of March 18-24, 2019.
EPA has designated the HCWA as a WaterSense Promotional Partner. By promoting the value of water, the WaterSense Program helps consumers make wise choices regarding their water use and the availability of water-efficient products.
Some of the common sources of household leaks include: Toilets, Shower Heads, Faucets, Outdoor Spigots, Sprinkler/Irrigation Systems, Water Lines, and Appliances.
While Fix-A-Leak Week is designed to raise awareness on how to find and fix household water leaks, HCWA customers can do so at any time during the year to save money and water.
