In recognition of Imagine a Day Without Water, Warren Water is joining the Value of Water Coalition and asking our community to consider the impact of living without quality tap water, our most precious resource.
The Value of Water Coalition is dedicated to educating and inspiring the nation on how water is essential and invaluable and therefore, needs investment. The Kentucky Water Resources Board was created during the 2016 Session of the Kentucky General Assembly. The board was formed to provide state regulators with recommendations on water use efficiency, as well as develop a water conservation strategy for the state’s agricultural sector.
Kentucky Rural Water Association Executive Director Gary Larimore shared, “It is critical and more evident with the pandemic that our water resources continue to be a focus across the state. Kentucky Rural Water Association partners with water and wastewater utilities across the state to help them protect and manage this valuable resource. We continue to make great strides.”
“Warren Water is honored to join the Value of Water Coalition and Kentucky’s Water Resources Board and hundreds of other organizations around the country who are participating in the sixth annual Imagine a Day Without Water. A day without water would be a public health and safety crisis. The fight against COVID-19 would seem impossible. It means no water to wash your hands, shower or flush the toilet, no water to drink or cook with, and no water to do laundry or dishes. A single nationwide day without water service would make it impossible for doctors, firefighters, and farmers to serve our communities.,” stated John Dix, WCWD general manager. “It’s great to see continued proactive steps for the future of water infrastructure at both the state and federal level.”
As the community considers the impact of living without water, we invite everyone to participate in our online social media push with messaging to share with family and friends. For participants who like, share and comment on our posts between October 21 and October 22 your name will be entered in a drawing to win a pizza and pizza cutter (three winners will be drawn). Why pizza? Food for thought, it takes 42 gallons of water to make one slice of pizza plus everyone loves pizza.
