What do you get when 916 Shoreline area students (aka Leak Detectives) take the Fix a Leak Challenge? No less than 229 leaky toilets
apprehended, er… identified! :-)
North City Water District has once again partnered with Shoreline area schools for the annual Fix-A-Leak Challenge. Eighty nine awesome 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 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
