Join us in celebrating Imagine a Day Without Water! We encourage you to learn more about where your water comes from and where it goes.

The systems that deliver water to homes and businesses are vital but often out of sight. Imagine a Day Without Water is an opportunity to learn about your water. Where does it come from? Where does it go after you use it? Are your local water utilities or providers face challenges like an aging system, drought, floods, pollution, or other problems?

What would a day without water look like for you?

On Imagine a Day Without Water, we ask everyone to consider what their day would be like if they couldn’t turn on the tap and get clean drinking water, or if you flushed the toilet and wastewater didn’t go anywhere. What would that day be like? #ValueWater
