HADDON HEIGHTS, N.J., May 5, 2003 -- Celebrating one of the world's most precious resources, New Jersey American will donate the Enviroscape to Gloucester County Parks and Recreation for National Drinking Water Week, May 4-10, 2003.

On May 6, 2003 at 1 p.m. at Scotland Run Park in Clayton, New Jersey American associates will be joined by Rod Groff, Director of Gloucester County Parks and Recreation and other officials to dedicate and demonstrate the Enviroscape.

The Enviroscape is an interactive model that teaches children and adults about the sources of water pollution and ways to prevent it. The educational tool is also mobile, enabling Gloucester County to spread the word of water source protection throughout the county and state.

For more than 30 years, the American Water Works Association (AWWA), the world's largest scientific and educational organization dedicated to drinking water quality and public drinking water supply, has celebrated Drinking Water Week with its members.

As members of the AWWA and the Partnership for Safe Water, New Jersey American takes an active role in Drinking Water Week to raise public awareness of the importance of protecting and valuing our drinking water.
