Picture this: water there when you need it

There When You Need It Drinking Water Week May 2-8Drinking Water Week is an annual opportunity for water professionals and the communities they serve to recognize the value of water that so many of us take for granted. This year, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) is literally asking water enthusiasts to picture the many benefits that water brings to their daily lives.

Picture, as in snap a photo and post it.

To promote the May 2-8 Drinking Water Week celebration, AWWA is sponsoring a Drinking Water Week photo contest to heighten awareness of and appreciation for safe, sustainable and affordable drinking water.

All you need to do is notice a moment when water is “there when you need it,” snap a photo, and enter the online contest
