That’s the theme for Fix-a-Leak Week, March 16 – 21, 2015. During this week, the City of Richmond Department of Public Utilities and other WaterSense partners reminded residents and customers to check their plumbing and irrigation systems for leaks. Customers may be surprised at how costly leaks can be and how simple some are to repair. Representatives from the Department of Public Utilities distributed free water leak detection kits at the EDI, City Hall, and the Southside Community Service Center. If you were unable to get one, you can email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 646-5224 during regular business hours and leave your name and address. Be sure to spell your name and street address clearly.
“Water is one of our most valued natural resources. That means that water conservation is everyone’s job,” said Department of Public Utilities Director, Bob Steidel. “During Fix-A-Leak week, we like to highlight to our customers the importance of saving money by fixing those everyday household leaks.”
