Report Body

Item Summary:

The average household’s leaks can account for nearly 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year and ten percent of homes have leaks that waste 90 gallons or more per day. Common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves. These types of leaks are often easy to fix, requiring only a few tools and hardware that can pay for themselves in water savings. Fixing easily corrected household water leaks can save homeowners about 10 percent on their water bills.

 

The City of Roswell, as a WaterSense partner, is encouraging residents to find and fix leaks to save water in our community.

 

The City offers a free online web portal, AquaHawk, (<http://www.roswellgov.com/government/departments/environmental-public-works/water-utility/aquahawk>) which enables Roswell water customers to view their water usage and an estimate of their monthly bill. Once registered, users can sign up to receive notification if their consumption indicates a potential leak or abnormal usage resulting in water and financial savings.
