Replace your shower heads for freeIt’s Fix A Leak Week at Colorado Springs Utilities!

Did you know that an American home can waste, on average, more than 10,000 gallons of water every year due to running toilets, dripping faucets, and other household leaks?

Nationwide, more than 1 trillion gallons of water leak from U.S. homes each year.

That’s why we work with WaterSense to remind customers to check their plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems each year during Fix a Leak Week, which takes place this year March 12-18.
