Money Down The Drain

Leaking toilets are the number one source of wasted water in the home. The trouble with leaking toilets is you don't always hear them leaking. Slow, silent toilet leaks are quite common. Checking regularly for toilet leaks is not a part of most people's normal routine, but it should be.

Here are some of the more obvious signs of a leaking toilet in your home:

      • If you have to jiggle the handle to stop the toilet from running
      • Noises from a toilet that is not being used
      • If you can see water trickling down the sides of the toilet in to the bowl a while after it was flushed

Toilet leaks can waste hundreds to thousands of gallons. They cost you money and waste a substantial amount of water. Fortunately, most toilet leaks are easy and inexpensive to fix. Generally, repair kits are reasonably priced and are available at most hardware stores.

Checking for the leak is easy!

        • Remove the toilet tank lid
        • Place a dye strip from City Hall or 10 drops of food coloring in to the toilet tank. Don't Flush!
        • Wait 10-15 minutes. If color appears in the bowl without flushing, this means water is leaking from the tank after it goes through your water meter. Money down the drain!

Citizen Survey Results

The West Burlington City Council is pleased to report the results of our Citizen Survey which was conducted in May of 2014. 1,200 surveys were mailed to all residential properties in the City of West Burlington. We were impressed with the response and extremely proud of the way the first two questions were answered. The Iowa Institute of Public Affairs reported that percentages that high are unheard of. We think this says a lot about West Burlington and the citizens we have in our little community. Out the 1,200 surveys that were mailed, we received 490 responses. That is a 40.8% response rate.
