Department of Water Resources offers Free "Fix A Leak" Workshop

Lawrenceville — Every year, water leaks in the average home can account for more than 10,000 gallons in wasted water. 

That means that by fixing easily corrected household leaks, home owners can save up to 10% on their water bills.

Join Gwinnett County Department of Water Resources for a free, hands-on workshop to learn how to detect and correct water leaks around your home.  Held in conjunction with EPA’s national “Fix a Leak” week, the workshop will take place on Tuesday, March 15 at 7:00 p.m. in the Gwinnett Justice and Administration Center, Conference Room A.

There will be licensed plumbers and other water experts on hand to answer questions and demonstrate simple repairs.  All attendees will receive a free, low-flow home retrofit kit.

Space is limited, so pre-registration is recommended.  To pre-register, send an email with your name, address and phone number to DWRconserve@gwinnettcounty.com or call 678-673-7126.
