Citrus County Students Challenged to Detect Toilet Leaks

By Meaghan Goepferich Posted on January 8, 2022

Citrus County Utilities is hosting its 8th Annual Classroom Leak Detection Challenge for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms.

Citrus County Students Challenged to Detect Toilet Leaks

This annual event celebrates the EPA’s “We’re for Water” initiative by challenging students to test their home toilets for leaks. According to EPA Water Sense, fixing one leaky toilet can save up to 200 gallons a day.

All supplies are provided by the utility. For brick-and-mortar classrooms, the utility will mail dye tablets, student worksheets, and pencils to the school. Students working from home can substitute food coloring to perform the test.

As a thank you, the utility will provide shower timers to the entire class once results are received. Additionally, teachers that submit a class photo holding the “We’re for Water” sign will receive color-changing reusable water bottles.

Teachers interested in participating in the 2022 challenge should send an email to [email protected] by Wednesday, April 6, 2022, including the school, teacher name, grade level, and the number of students in the message. For more information, contact Debra Burden at (352) 527-7684.
