    Other CSD News & Happenings

    Water leaks and losses are costly!!!  Did you know that a leaky toilet can result in a loss of 30 units of water overnight!!  Such losses are costly to affected customers but are quickly fixed.  The District has toilet leak detection tablets for free!!  If you suspect that you have a toilet leak, come into District office and get a leak detection tablet.  See Tamara at front desk.

    Congratulations to Lions Club organization for solving their leak which caused a loss of 34 units of drinking water.  34 units of water are equal to 25,432 gallons or about the same as an average residence swimming pool, 20 ft x 30 ft with 5 foot depth that equals 22,500 gallons.                   So Thanks Lions Club for your quick fix!!!
