Saving water can save money, too!

City Treasurer Jaynmarie Hubanks recommends residents write down monthly (or even weekly) water meter reads on a calendar and compare it to your normal usage indicated on your past quarterly water bills.

"This simple task may allow you to identify a possible water leak EARLY and before it causes you a high water bill,” she said.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency, the average household's leaks can account for more than 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.
