This week marks the American Water Works Association’s drinking water awareness week, and they are offering a suite of free materials for water operators and utilities to raise you profile in your local communities. “This year’s Drinking Water Week will motivate water consumers to be actively aware of how they personally connect with water,” said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance. “We should all know how to find and fix leaks, care for our home’s pipes and support our utility’s investment in water infrastructure.” The materials – which include artwork, public service announcements, press and social media posts and more – provide an introduction four key steps AWWA is highlighting for water users this year: Drinking Water Week Introduction – AWWA encourages getting to know and love tap water. Get the Lead Out – Replace lead-based water pipes and plumbing. Check and Fix Leaks – Conserve water by checking and fixing leaks inside and outside the home. Caring For Pipes – Stop clogs before they happen by learning more about what can and can’t be flushed. Water Infrastructure Investment – Protect your water supply by advocating for investment in the repair and replacement of infrastructure. Help celebrate the rest of Drinking Water Week, and bookmark their materials for the next time your program wants to promote these issues.
