    The city of Fort Worth is asking residents to check for and repair any water leaks found at their homes or businesses.

    According to a news release from the city, "a continuous leak from a hole that is just one-sixteenth of an inch in diameter can waste 74,000 gallons of water over three months. If the continuous leak is one-quarter of an inch, the wasted water could top one million gallons."

    With that in mind, March 12-18 is Fix A Leak Week in the city.

    The city recommends checking toilets for silent leaks and replacing old showerheads with WaterSense-labeled models.
