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
