March 19-25, 2018 is designated as national Fix a Leak Week, a week aimed at promoting water waste awareness and what you can do to save water and money.
Did you know that in Southlake, there is a 1 in 13 chance your home has a leak?

That much water waste can seriously impact your pocketbook.

If you are near Southlake Town Hall the week of March 19, stop by the lobby on the second floor and enjoy informational displays, handouts and free items designed to reduce water consumption in your home.
