BC Water Week 2019
May 5 – May 11 all-day

BC Water Week provides a unique opportunity for water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives.

There are many ways you can get involved, whether it’s through educational materials and events in your community or just for your staff. Here are a few great suggestions, care of our friends at the American Water Works Association (AWWA):

 

In your community

  • Invite your community to an open house
  • Inaugurate an adopt-a-hydrant program
  • Plant a tree
  • Host plant tours
  • Bury a time capsule
  • Partner with your local botanic gardens or other groups
  • Plan a community shoreline clean-up
  • Feature a children’s coloring contest or essay contest
  • Hold a poster contest

 

In your workplace

Imagine a Day Without Water
Oct 23 all-day
Imagine a Day Without Water

No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops.

Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day. Imagine a Day Without Water 2019 is the fifth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
