District Offers Rebates to Customers for Fixing Leaks

By on March 14, 2020

Sweetwater Authority (Authority) has announced they will be offering rebates of up to $75 to customers who repair leaks during the month of March. The special month-long rebate is in celebration of the national Fix a Leak Week, which serves as an annual reminder to check household plumbing fixtures and irrigation systems for leaks.

Minor household water leaks account for more than a trillion gallons of water wasted each year in homes across the country. To promote the importance of repairing leaks as a means to conserve and protect everyone’s water supply, Fix a Leak Week was created by the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) WaterSense program.

In addition to rebates on leak repairs, the Authority will also be offering a $75 rebate for customers who replace or install a new pressure reduction valve at their home.

For an application and additional information on how to apply for the rebate, please visit www.sweetwater.org/fixaleak.

To learn more about the rebate, or to schedule a free water audit for your home or business, please call the Authority’s Water Efficiency helpline at (619) 409-6779 or email waterefficiency@sweetwater.org.
