Warren Water Celebrates Drinking Water Week

Warren Water will join water utilities across the country to celebrate Drinking Water Week (May 5-11) by recognizing the vital role tap water plays in daily life, the infrastructure that is required to carry it to and from homes and businesses, and the important work of water professionals “behind the scenes” to provide reliable water service.

“Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity to recognize our most valuable resource and the team who delivers quality on tap 24/7,” said Jacob Cuarta, Warren County Water District General Manager. “This year’s focus is on the human element behind safe water. We celebrate our team of water professionals for their commitment to water quality and operational excellence directly impacting the prosperity of our community.”

To celebrate our most precious resource and reinforce our commitment to go above and beyond for the community, Warren Water will host our Spring Food Truck Frenzy to support United Way. A full outline of vendors, dates and times can be found at warrenwater.com.

WARREN WATER ASKS THE COMMUNITY TO IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT WATER

In recognition of Imagine a Day Without Water on October 20, 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 Scott Young 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 ninth annual Imagine a Day Without Water. A day without water would be a public health and safety crisis. The fight against viruses 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 Jacob Cuarta, WCWD general manager. “It’s great to see continued proactive steps for the future of water infrastructure at both the state and federal level.”

REINFORCING HEALTH HABITS

The Wash Your Hands campaign, launches in-conjunction with Global Handwashing Day on October 15, to reinforce healthy habits within the community. The annual campaign is sponsored by Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System and the Barren River District Health Department. This community wide Wash Your Hands campaign brings attention to proper handwashing in an effort to keep our community healthy. 

“The Barren River District Health Department works to help our communities stay at their optimal health and we are always eager to form partnerships with other organizations that are interested in promoting healthy lifestyles – that’s why this alliance with Warren, Simpson and Butler Water has proven to be successful in the past. Our outreach is stronger when we band together and is even more important during flu season,” stated Ashley Lillard, Barren River District Health Department Director for Population Health.     

The wash your hands campaign provides free mirror clings for schools, daycares, businesses and other organizations to use in their facilities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, handwashing is the single most important thing we can do to keep from getting sick and spreading illness to others. 

General Manager Jacob Cuarta is pleased to launch this campaign once again with BRDHD. “The fight against any virus impacts our community and by reinforcing our messaging to properly wash hands for at least 20 seconds will lessen the spread. Frequent and proper hand hygiene is one of the most important things we can all do to prevent infection. Good health is in your hands.”   

To receive free mirror clings/posters for your school/daycare, business or organization stop by the offices of Warren County Water District, Simpson County Water District, Butler County Water System or the Barren River District Health Department.

WARREN WATER CELEBRATES DRINKING WATER WEEK

Warren Water will join water utilities across the country to celebrate Drinking Water Week (May 7-13) by recognizing the vital role tap water plays in daily life, the infrastructure that is required to carry it to and from homes and businesses, and the important work of water professionals “behind the scenes” to provide reliable water service.

“Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity to recognize our most valuable resource and the team who delivers quality on tap 24/7. We can’t minimize the importance of a healthy water supply in our daily lives,” said Jacob Cuarta, Warren County Water District General Manager. “With the past few years, we reflect on the heroic work of all who place themselves in harm’s way to keep us healthy and safe. Warren Water encourages everyone to be actively aware of how they personally connect with water.” 

To celebrate with the younger generation, Warren Water will host a coloring contest. First, second and third graders will be eligible to participate. Details can be found online at www.warrenwater.com or visit Warren Water’s office to receive an official coloring sheet. The entry deadline is May 19.  

Drinking Water Week 2023 Campaign, which is hosted by the American Water Works Association (AWWA), is a national advocacy event designed to focus on issues associated with drinking water, including making sure that individuals have fresh, safe tap water and knowledge of how valuable the resource is in their daily lives. Tap water plays a critical role in the success of society, from meeting basic public health needs by providing safe drinking water and adequate sanitation, to promoting dental health and supporting industrial, agricultural, medical, and recreational activities. 

“We are proud of our team at Warren Water who work around the clock to bring safe, reliable water to residences and businesses, testing the water over 1,000,000 times a year to ensure quality,” Cuarta added, “This week gives us the opportunity to recognize their commitment to customers, quality service and public health.
