Pueblo Wateris celebrating Drinking Water Week by encouraging consumers to recognize their tap water is “There When You Need It.” Drinking Water Week is May 3-9 this year.
Pueblo Water and the American Water Works Association (AWWA) will observe Drinking Water Week by recognizing the vital role tap water plays in daily life, the infrastructure that is required to carry it to and from homes and businesses, and the important work of water professionals “behind the scenes.”
“With so much changing around us nowadays, it is comforting to know that our tap water is readily available for hygienic and drinking purposes,” said AWWA CEO David LaFrance. “Even during the coronavirus pandemic, water professionals across North America continue to report to work to collect, treat and distribute water to ensure the health and safety of their communities.”
To commemorate the week, water utilities, water organizations, government entities, environmental advocates, schools and other stakeholders throughout North America and beyond will encourage consumers to understand and appreciate their drinking water.
Puebloans are fortunate to have reliable access to safe water when they turn on the tap. In large part this stems from regular testing to ensure that standards are met for water quality. Click here for Pueblo Water’s 2020 Consumer Confidence Report.
For more than 40 years, AWWA and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week, a distinct opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join in recognizing the vital role water plays in daily lives.
