Golden State Water partners with the
Environmental Protection Agency for the
ninth annual National Fix a Leak Week,
March 20-26, 2017
Golden State Water Company (Golden State Water) is partnering with the U.S.
Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to raise awareness and help customers
improve their water-use efficiency during the ninth annual National Fix a
Leak Week, March 20-26, 2017.
Fix a Leak Week, part of EPA's WaterSense program, provides customers with
easy steps they can take to identify and fix hidden leaks at their homes.
According to the EPA, water leaks account for more than 1 trillion gallons
of water wasted each year in U.S. homes, and the average household loses
approximately 10,000 gallons of water annually due to leaks.
Golden State Water's local offices are offering free leak-detecting dye
tablets to customers during Fix a Leak Week, while supplies last.
Additionally, a limited quantity of high-efficiency WaterSense labeled
showerheads and aerators are also available for pickup, or they can be
ordered online at gswatersavers.com  and delivered directly to homes.
"Golden State Water encourages customers to use water wisely. It's important
we maximize our water-use efficiency, focusing on daily habits to make
conservation a way of life, and not just a short-term fix," said Edwin
DeLeon, Water-Use Efficiency Manager for Golden State Water.
Golden State Water offers online resources, including several tutorials to
educate customers about fixing leaks and using water responsibly at their
properties. To learn more about water-use efficiency resources, programs and
rebates available in a specific service area, customers are encouraged to
