City Leak Detection
Crews continually work at fire hydrants and valves to find any potential water leaks throughout Concord. Finding hidden leaks helps to conserve water from our water source at Penacook Lake. Stopping leaks also prevents the waste of City treated water and reduces the efforts and costs of excessive pumping. Water service will not be interrupted unless a leak is found. Notice will be given if a leak is found before repair. The City of Concord is not responsible for leaks found within private property.
Household Leak Detection
We are doing our part to stop leaks, you can too! Leaks decrease the water available for consumption and cause outrageous utility bills. Check for leaks around the home by reading your water meter and inspecting your toilet, faucets, shower head, and even irrigation system.
Fix A Leak Week
Fix A Leak Week is an annual national EPA WaterSense event held to encourage finding and fixing household leaks. This year marks the 7th annual Fix A Leak Week, which will occur March 16, 2015 through March 22, 2015. Most leaks are easy to fix, such as a running toilet, a dripping faucet, or other leaky pipes around the house. Finding and fixing leaks is simple if you check, twist, and replace! Check for leaks, twist to tighten fixture connections, and replace if necessary with WaterSense labeled models. Visit our WaterSense page for information about WaterSense, Fix A Leak Week, and how to fix household leaks.
Royal Leak Detection
We're celebrating EPA WaterSense's Fix A Leak Week by holding a Royal Leak Detection! Concord residents and merchants can enter to win a new WaterSense labeled toilet by sharing a picture with us of their leak detection efforts (reading their water meter, food coloring test, or fixture tightening/replacing). Photos can be shared to our Facebook or Twitter page (#IFixLeaks), sent to our email, delivered to our office (311 North State Street, Concord, NH), or mailed to us in care of "Royal Leak Detection." If you find a leak, tell us! If not, you're still entered for a chance to win along with your photo submission. Entries must be received by March 20, 2015. Everyone who participates wins by helping to save water! Fixing leaks can also help to potentially save money off your water bill! One winner will be selected to receive a WaterSense labeled toilet that uses less than approximately 5 gallons of water per flush than a typical, older toilet.
