IMAGINE A DAY WITHOUT WATER

 

Warren Water Asks the Community to Imagine A Day Without Water
Launches Art Contest Ages 5-18

 

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.   

As the community considers the impact of living without water, Warren Water invite ages 5-18 to participate in our first art contest. The contest will be divided into four age divisions and within each age division cash awards will be given to first, second and third place. Winning pieces will be featured in the 2022 Warren Water calendar and posted on social media. The deadline is November 12 for entry submission.  All details can be found at www.warrenwater.com.     

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 seventh annual Imagine a Day Without Water,” stated John Dix, WCWD general manager. “We look forward to engaging our youth with the art contest.  This is a great way to continue the conversation about our most precious resource. A day without water would be a public health and safety crisis.  The fight against COVID-19 would seem impossible.”

Reinforcing Health Habits

The Wash Your Hands campaign, launches in-conjunction with Global Handwashing Day, 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 a pandemic,” 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 John Dix is pleased to launch this campaign once again with BRDHD.  “The fight against COVID-19 impacts everyone within our community and by reinforcing our messaging to properly wash hands for at least 20 seconds will lessen the spread with the continued reminders. Frequent and proper hand hygiene is on 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.

The Warren County Water District continues to promote education in the water supply field and as a part of its overall community involvement efforts by offering a scholarship each year.  Jordan Voyles from Warren East High School was awarded a $1,000 scholarship to Western Kentucky University for the 2021-2022 academic year. 

“Jordan’s qualities of a hard working student with a determination to succeed elevated her as the top candidate,” said WCWD General Manager John Dix. “As an honor roll student, Jordan worked a part-time job and volunteered for the Barren County Special Olympics for the past five years. As a varsity cheerleader she also balanced various leadership roles within her school and participated in numerous extracurricular activities. We are excited to offer assistance as she furthers her higher education endeavors with a degree in exercise science. This scholarship is another way we can serve our community and our customers.”  

In an effort to foster success of future water and sewer utility professionals, the scholarship is offered to assist a Warren County high school senior pursuing further education in a related field.  The scholarship is renewable for four years, as long as requirements are maintained.

WARREN WATER COMMENDS WATER PROFESSIONALS DURING DRINKING WATER WEEK

(Bowling Green, KY)- Warren Water commends the hardworking men and women who help ensure that tap water is “There When You Need It” during Drinking Water Week held May 2-8. 

Warren Water, American Water Works Association and water utilities nationwide will observe Drinking Water Week 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”.

Reliable water service used for hygiene, hydration and cooking is critical to our health and safety throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Health organizations recommend that normal hygienic practices, including handwashing for 20 seconds, play an important role in slowing the spread of germs.

“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 John Dix, WCWD General Manager. “During these difficult times, we continually 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.”
 

Drinking Water Week 2021 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 130,000 times a month to ensure quality,” Dix added, “This week gives us the opportunity to recognize their commitment to customers, quality service and public health.”
