The 90-Day Plan: DAY 28

DAY 28

What would you do if someone were stealing from you? You may be stealing
from yourself. IDENTIFY and REPAIR LEAKES in your home to prevent your
household from losing money. One faucet can leak about 20 gallons per day
and one toilet can leak about 50 gallons per day; over one month, that
adds up to a lot of stolen water—don't forget to check for leaks in your
basement and outside.

Challenge: Municipalities that provide water lose, on average, 10-20% of
water to leaks in the system. Call your water district and ask, how much
water they are losing to leakage? Are they doing anything to perform
infrastructure repair?
