What do you get when 916 Shoreline area students (aka Leak Detectives) take the Fix a Leak Challenge? No less than 229 leaky toilets identified!

North City Water District partnered with Shoreline area schools for the annual Fix-A-Leak Challenge.

Eighty-nine teachers agreed to distribute toilet dye strip test kits to their students, along with the challenge to be “Leak Detectives” and test their home toilets for leaks.

Given that toilets are the #1 cause of undetected water leaks and resulting high water bills, these simple tests are a great way to stop money from “going down the drain” for homeowners, businesses, and schools alike.

Special recognition goes out to the following eleven classrooms that had 100% participation, which qualified their class for entry into a drawing for some special prizes:

    Ms. Ness’s Kindergarten – Kings School
    Ms. Dunphy’s 1st Grade – Kings School
    Mr. Blanchard’s 2nd Grade – Echo Lake
    Ms. White’s 2nd Grade – Kings School
    Ms. Bachelor’s 2nd Grade – Kings School
    Ms. Lindbald’s 3rd Grade – Kings School
    Ms. Peter’s 3rd / 4th Grade – Meridian Park
    Ms. Benson’s 4th Grade – Brookside
    Mr. Fujii’s 5th Grade – Kings
    Ms. Walsh’s 5th Grade – Kings
    Ms. Lersch’s 5th Grade – St. Mark’s

Ms. Lersch's 5th Grade at St. Marks

On May 14, North City Water District Commissioner Charlotte Haines conducted the drawing during the Shoreline STEM festival. The following classrooms won prizes:
