Drinking Water Week

This yearLogowTagline_color_english's Drinking Water Week is from May 2 to 8. For several decades, the American Water Works Associations (AWWA) has celebrated Drinking Water Week to provide an opportunity for both Public Works staff and the community they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in daily lives.
