We’re not one to tell anyone how to celebrate a holiday.
Whether you enjoy festive meals, solemn introspection or gathering with family, holidays are celebratory times, and Drinking Water Week is no different.
Drinking Water Week is a decades-long tradition led by the American Water Works Association (AWWA). Taking place May 7-13 this year, Drinking Water Week celebrates the vital role water plays in everyday life for both water professionals and the communities they serve.
So, as we prepare for Drinking Water Week, we wanted to offer a reminder of the reason to spend some time celebrating and appreciating our water.
- Use Drinking Water Week as an opportunity to learn about the critical infrastructure in their community that transports water from collection to treatment to their taps to ensure access to safe drinking water.
- Learn about how truly vital clean, safe water is in daily life and its role in protecting public health and the environment now and in the future. This year, Drinking Water Week encourages us to recognize and honor the critical, around-the-clock work of water professionals to deliver quality tap water while bolstering resilience for water in the future.
So, when you get a chance, we encourage you to raise a glass of your tap water and celebrate this year’s Drinking Water Week!
