Leak Detection and Meter Reading

Slow drips of water can add up quickly.  Leaky faucets and “running” toilets after flushing are often the biggest water wasters inside the home.  If the faucet is leaking hot water, energy is being wasted as well.  Checking for leaks is very simple and repairs are usually minimal.  The following links give guidance on how to find and repair leaks and how to locate and read your water meter.  The "Find and Fix Leaks" pdf was developed by Seattle Public Utilities for the Saving Water Partnership.  Birch Bay Water and Sewer District thanks them for permission to use it.
