DENVER -- As Drinking Water Week continues, the American Water Works Association and water professionals across North America will celebrate with special events focused on getting to know drinking water and the local drinking water supply.
To commemorate this week, water utilities, environmental advocates and other interested groups will celebrate drinking water through school events, public presentations and community festivals. They will also provide their communities with vital information on how water consumers can get to know their H₂O.
“It’s important we show our appreciation for our drinking water by celebrating its value through special activities meant to bring awareness about Drinking Water Week. This is the opportune time to convey our message about drinking water to others but also to commemorate this important week of celebration,” said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance.
AWWA will join in the festivities in celebrating this important week by hosting several special events at its headquarters office in Denver to raise funds for the Association’s scholarship program. All of the events during Drinking Water Week will center on assisting employees in understanding drinking water and its value in our daily lives.
