This is Fix a Leak Week

LIHUE — The county Department of Water is encouraging all water users to find and fix residential leaks during the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s annual Fix a Leak Week from today through Friday.

As part of the EPA’s WaterSense program, DOW’s Fix a Leak Week program encourages residents to help put a stop to the more than 1 trillion gallons of water wasted from household leaks across America each year.

“Even a small household leak from a bathroom faucet can waste about 3,000 gallons of water over the course of a year,” said Kirk Saiki, DOW manager and chief engineer. “As a WaterSense partner, we are encouraging consumers to find and fix leaks in order to conserve water in our community and protect our most precious resource.”

During Fix a Leak Week, the DOW is giving away free leak detection starter kits at their office at 4398 Pua Loke St. in Lihue.
