In celebration of the EPA’s “We’re for Water” initiative, Citrus County Utilities challenged 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms to test home toilets for leaks in the third annual Classroom Leak Detection Challenge.
Twenty-nine classes from six schools tested 593 toilets using dye tablets provided by the utility.
