Simpson Water kicked off this year’s National Drinking Water Week with an invitation to “Protect the Source” throughout Simpson County and across the region.
Simpson Water, Kentucky Rural Water Association, the American Water Works Association and water utilities nationwide will celebrate National Drinking Water Week (May 5-11) by recognizing the vital role drinking water plays in daily lives. Focus will be placed on ways in which water consumers can take personal responsibility in caring for their tap water and protecting its source.
“We can’t minimize the importance of a healthy water supply in our daily lives. National Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity to recognize this valuable resource and service,” said John Dix, SCWD General Manager. “Simpson Water encourages customers to be actively aware of how they personally connect with water and help us protect our water supply.”
National Drinking Water Week 2019 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 Simpson Water who work around the clock to bring safe, reliable water to residences and businesses, testing the water 65,000 times a month to ensure quality,” Dix added, “This week gives us the opportunity to recognize their commitment to customers and quality service.”
Established in 1881, AWWA is the oldest and largest nonprofit, scientific and educational organization dedicated to safe water in North America. AWWA has more than 60,000 members worldwide. Butler Water is proud to participate in this tradition as your local water provider.
