Household leaks can waste nearly a trillion gallons of water annually nationwide. Ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. The most important action a residential water consumer can take is to maintain a water-efficient home.
Fix a Leak Week was created to motivate people to check for leaks, fix them, and save water and money. The Smart Home Water Guide, produced by the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association (AMWUA), can help residents and is available free by mail from Tucson Water.
