AWWA Launches New Source Water Protection Week in September

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) is launching a new Source Water Protection Week starting this year on September 26 – October 2. AWWA invites water utilities, AWWA sections, states, and other partners to join in on raising awareness about the importance of protecting drinking water sources during this week. Download the materials you can use to celebrate the week such as logos, social media graphics and posts, and proclamations from the AWWA website.

As part of Source Water Protection Week Week, AWWA is also hosting a #ShowYourSource social media contest. Beginning September 26, utilities and partner organizations are encouraged to post photos or short videos on social media using the hashtag #ShowYourSource to share information about their precious water sources. More information about Source Water Protection is available on AWWA’s resource page and at the Source Water Collaborative Learning Exchange.
