Introduction

  • Focus on Water Initiative project: Water Leak Pilot

    Many older homes have plumbing that may be leaky and may also contain lead.  Water leaks can increase your water bill and can also allow unsafe bacteria and contaminants to enter your water. 

    Water leaks within the home and through the community may also impact overall water affordability, the cost associated with water delivery to community residents, due to energy and water waste within the system.
