From The Pueblo Chieftain (Jimmy Rogers):
Chances are that the greatest “water-waster” inside your home is that constant flow in your toilet tank. That spill can waste one gallon every 24 minutes, or more than 60 gallons per day, which could cost over $4 extra each month on your water bill…
So, when I flush my toilet or turn on my shower, I think about everything it takes to bring that water to my house. I know it takes a lot of money to keep the water flowing and I’m concerned that some of that money could be used for police departments, fire protection and schools.
