City of Fairview Water Quality Report/Monitoring Results

WATER PIPE LEAKS

A stream of water 1/16" in diameter (about the size of a pinhead) is 25,000 gallons of water in one month. Remember, this leak will continue 24 hours a day under about 50 pounds per square inch (psi) pressure.

TOILET TANK OVERFLOW

When our toilet continues to "run" and when we hear it we jiggle the handle to make it stop. During the time it has been "running," water is drawn into the toilet tank and then is draining into the sewer pipe. This kind of leak wastes 5,000 to 10,000 gallons of water each month. A second problem is created by this kind of leak because extra water is put into the sewer lagoon ponds causing the pond level to rise too much.

GARDEN HOSE LEFT ON OVERNIGHT

A three-quarter inch garden hose, left running for 8 hours, will flow more than 10,000 gallons of water.

 

The negative impact is threefold:


1. Leaks waste our most precious and necessary natural resource.
2. All the water that flows through your water meter, used or leaked away, costs you money.
3. Your sewer bill is calculated by a certain number of dollars and cents multiplied by your water consumption! In this case, water consumption means the number of gallons that passed through your water meter.

Water conservation is not only good for the all of humanity, it is also healthy for your bank account!

If you wish more information about water conservation, please call or visit us at City Hall or contact us by e-mail. If you suspect you might have a leak, please contact us.
