This is an excerpt from an article published by another water district regarding a simple toilet leak fix. 

Did you know that your toilet accounts for almost 40 percent of the water you use indoors?  Studies have shown that one in five toilets leak. That means that those toilet leaks can waste lots of water and cause higher water bills. A silent toilet leak can waste more than 50 gallons or more of water a day. Some of these leaks will empty directly into your septic system without any sign of water running in the toilet bowl. If you think you have a toilet leak, try this suggestion to see if you can easily fix the leak yourself, or call a plumber. 

To test your toilet for leaks, remove the lid of the toilet tank. Drop a tiny bit of food coloring into the tank and wait 15 minutes. If color appears in the toilet bowl, then you have a leak. One of the most common culprits of leaks is the flapper or flush valve. It may not be seating properly on the valve seat, or it may need replacement. This is typically the cause of running toilets. Over time the valve’s rubber material deteriorates because it is constantly under water. If you gently rub the valve and get streaks on your fingers, you should replace the valve now.

The Board of Directors would like to remind everyone that the dam and reservoir area is off limits to the general public. Please do not hike up or allow your children to play around the dam’s steep slope! As required by the State, the area has been seeded with native grasses to support the Preble Mouse habitat that has been established in the reservoir area. Drive up Estes Park Estates Drive for a nice overall view of the reservoir.

Once again a reminder, if your house is vacant, please have the water turned off at the meter and possibly prevent costly leaks and meter damage.
