This week kicks off Drinking Water Week, a decades-long tradition led by the American Water Works Association. Drinking Water Week is a celebration recognizing the vital role water plays in everyday life for both water professionals and the communities they serve.
Every day, through the critical service we deliver, we touch the lives of our customers. We take great pride in being counted on by our customers for so much, from their morning coffee to supporting community healthcare, emergency response, sanitation and more. And while many take for granted the way of life we support; we know just how important it is, and how important the local water service team is to the communities we serve. Drinking Water Week is a great time to highlight their work and celebrate it.
Customers are encouraged to learn more about their local water service and to protect precious water resources by using water wisely. One of the most important things we can do is educate our youth about drinking water, including how it gets to homes and businesses and how to protect it.
A free children’s activity book created for Drinking Water Week offers fun, educational activities. Parents and teachers are encouraged to access it here.
