More than 1 trillion gallons of water are wasted in U.S. homes each year from easy-to-fix leaks. That is more than 10,000 gallons per year for the average home. The Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense® program is sponsoring Fix a Leak Week to highlight this problem. As a WaterSense® partner, the NYSDEC is promoting Fix a Leak Week in New York as an opportunity to improve the water efficiency of your home. We encourage you to find and fix the leaks in your home.
