Simpson Water will join water utilities across the country to celebrate Drinking Water Week (May 5-11) 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” to provide reliable water service.

“Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity to recognize our most valuable resource and the team who delivers quality on tap 24/7,” said Jacob Cuarta, Simpson County Water District General Manager. “This year’s focus is on the human element behind safe water. We celebrate our team of water professionals for their commitment to water quality and operational excellence directly impacting the prosperity of our community.”

Drinking Water Week 2024 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 over 1,000,000 times a year to ensure quality,” Cuarta added, “This week gives us the opportunity to recognize their commitment to customers, quality service and public health.”
