2014 marks the third year in a row that North City Water District worked with local elementary students in Shoreline and Lake Forest Park on the Annual Fix a Leak Week Challenge.
Briarcrest Elementary, Brookside Elementary, Cascade Elementary, King’s Elementary, Lake Forest Park Elementary, Parkwood Elementary, St. Mark’s Elementary, Shoreline Christian Elementary School and Syre Elementary School all participated.

The challenge was simple: students brought home dye strip tests as part of a special water conservation and awareness program in the classroom. They and their parents would use the strip to test their toilet for leaks, and bring back a signed note verifying the test had been completed. 

Fix a Leak Week not only received an overwhelmingly positive response from both students and teachers, it helped over 150 families find and repair leaks in their toilets. Thanks to the information provided on the challenge form this year, families could find easy instructions for fixing a leaky toilet online

The winning classrooms got a pizza party and their teacher was given a cash grant for school supplies.

13 classrooms with 100% participation from Brookside Elementary, King’s Elementary and St. Mark’s Parish School were eligible for the drawings of the grand prize. The winners were as follows:
  • Pizza Party: Mrs. Severns at King’s Elementary
  • Pizza Party: Mrs. Pilman at King’s Elementary
  • $100 school supplies: Mrs. Dunphy at King’s Elementary
  • $300 school supplies: Mrs. Keck at St. Mark’s Parish School
  • $500 school supplies: Mrs. Benson at Brookside Elementary
