In honor of national Fix a Leak Week, Coachella Valley Water District is hosting a Water Wise Leak Workshop to help people reduce water use.
The free event is being held from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on March 16 at the district’s Steve Robbins Administration Building at 75515 Hovley Lane East.
Event features include conservation vendor exhibits, leak experts, interactive activities, prize drawings and free leak detection tablets. There is no need to RSVP to attend.
Fix a Leak week is March 14-20 this year. This campaign was created by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to raise awareness about household leaks, which can waste more than 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide according to the EPA.
