Clearwater Celebrates Drinking Water Week

Post Date:05/01/2019 10:36 AM

CLEARWATER, Fla. – The city of Clearwater, in partnership with the American Water Works Association (AWWA), kicks off Drinking Water Week from May 5-11. This national event celebrates one of the world's most precious natural resources.

Water systems are critical to maintaining public health, economic vitality, fire protection and communities. Water is essential to daily life, and Clearwater’s water service is a convenience that sometimes can be taken for granted until a main break or boil water event occurs.

Clearwater’s water utility professionals proactively invest in the city's water system as a smart, safe, common sense investment that will pay off for generations to come. By working together, customers and water providers can ensure that local water sources remain available for decades to come.

“Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity for all of us to pause and consider the important role that a safe, reliable water supply plays in our daily lives,” said David Porter, Director of Clearwater Public Utilities. “We at Public Utilities feel privileged to provide our citizens with high-quality, reasonably priced water service that consistently meets their needs.”

For more than 35 years, AWWA has celebrated Drinking Water Week, an opportunity for both water professionals and local residents to join together to recognize the critical role water plays in daily life.
