Nominate your favorite non-profit organization to receive a water-saving retrofit during 2014 Fix a Leak Week. Fix a Leak Week is an initiative to encourage Americans to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation for leaks.
Last year’s winner, Action Ministries, received a WaterSense toilet, new kitchen faucet, and a new pre-rinse spray valve for their community kitchen. This retrofit reduced their water usage and lowered their water bill. The Athens Community Council on Aging was the 2012 Fix a Leak Week water-saving retrofit winner and has since cut their water use in half!
The winner is chosen based on their water saving potential and capacity for public education. Runner-ups will receive a free water efficiency assessment.
The DEADLINE for nominations is February 14, 2014. Nominate your favorite non-profit today!
The Athens-Clarke County Water Conservation Office partners with the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense Program for Fix a Leak Week. On average, the American home wastes more than 11,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks!
