Florida’s Public Service Commission (PSC) is partnering with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program to promote Fix a Leak Week, March 15–21. Each year, more than one trillion gallons of water is wasted in U.S. homes, and Fix a Leak Week serves as a reminder to check for leaks in your plumbing and irrigation systems. “We want to help consumers save money on their utility bills and save precious water supplies at the same time,” said PSC Chairman Nancy Argenziano. “Leaks at home can add up to more than 10,000 gallons of water wasted every year–that’s enough to fill a backyard swimming pool!”
