The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has several great resources available to check for and fix common household leaks:

Don't forget to check out the rebates Utilities offers if you replace a toilet or other water-using appliance.

The programs listed below are part of outside organizations that are unaffiliated with the City of Fort Collins. They offer services for repairs and increasing water efficiency. Utilities cannot guarantee their availability or services.

  • If you are a senior citizen or person with a disability, contact the Volunteers of America Handyman Program at 970-472-9630. This is only for minor repairs, such as a leaking toilet or faucet.
  • If you are a low-income resident who owns a home with a leak, contact RestorationNow at 970-460-6007 for indoor home repairs and plumbing and for outdoor work. They cannot guarantee immediate assistance, as it is dependent on the availability of their volunteers.

  • If you are a low-income resident, contact the Larimer Home Improvement Program at 970-667-3232 for larger home renovation or upgrade projects. They do not do individual toilet repairs.

Did You Know?

Installing occupancy sensors where lights frequently are left on when no one is present can help save money and energy.

The fireplace damper and doors should be closed when not in use. It prevents warmed or cooled air from easily escaping the house.

Pre-heating your home before 5 p.m. in the winter and coasting through the on-peak hours can save money on your utility bill.
