In Honor of Water Professionals During Drinking Water Week

This week, May 3-9, is National Drinking Water Week and ASDWA commends the hardworking men and women ensuring tap water is “There When You Need It.” This year’s theme provides a great opportunity to recognize the vital role of state drinking water programs and water utilities that have been working on the front lines through the COVID-19 pandemic to ensure safe drinking water and protect public health.

This week has been celebrated for more than 40 years and is a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives. It’s great to see the recognition of this day via the news, web and social media, as in-person events aren’t able to be held this year. To see some examples, check out this year’s news promotions from Louisville Water and the 2020 Drinking Water Week Awards in Washington State.
