Water Saving Tips

Village of Crooksville - Water Storage Tank
Water Storage Tank

If you feel your water bill is too high and you have not increased your day to day consumption, you may have a leak. Two of the most common leaks are associated with faucets and toilets.

  • Toilet Leaks
    • If your toilet leaks, you may be wasting enough water to keep a small creek flowing. Don’t assume that your toilet doesn’t leak because you can’t hear it. A toilet has to leak 250 gallons a day before it can be heard. A quick check can be made by completing the following steps:
      • Wait until your tank has filled and becomes quiet.
      • Drop a little red or blue food coloring into the tank and wait about 15 minutes.
      • If without flushing, the water in your toilet bowl changes colors, you have a leak.
  • Faucet Leaks
    • A slow drip from a faucet can waste 15 gallons of water per day. That may seem like a small number, but it can make a significant difference on your bill.
    • A 1/32″ leak dripping from a faucet wastes 25 gallons in a 24 hour period.
    • A 1/16″ stream from a faucet wastes 100 gallons in a 24 hour period.
    • A 1/8″ stream from a faucet wastes 400 gallons in a 24 hour period.
    • Not only do you want to check your inside faucets, but the outside faucets also. Outside faucet leaks often go undetected because the water they waste soaks into the ground.

Stormwater Utility

The Village has developed a Stormwater Utility (SWU) program to create a dedicated fund for the repair, replacement, maintenance, equipment, and administration required to operate a stormwater management system. The SWU charges are not established as a tax on the residents of the Village of Crooksville; these charges are established as a utility usage fee, similar to a water or sewer fee.

The following document explains how the rates were determined for residential and non-residential properties within the Village:
