DENVER, CO, May 4, 2015 -- On Sunday, May 3, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the water community kicked off Drinking Water Week 2015, being held May 3-9, across North America by asking the question, "What do you know about H2O?"

Throughout the week, AWWA and water community partners will celebrate the value of water by learning about the role it plays in our daily lives and in the quality of life we enjoy because of it. Special attention will be given to the ways in which water consumers can grow familiar with their H2O during this special week.

"Once again, AWWA and the water community are joining together to celebrate Drinking Water Week," said AWWA Chief Executive Officer David LaFrance. "Put simply, we continue to celebrate Drinking Water Week each year because drinking water is an invaluable part of our lives that deserves our full focus and attention."

To commemorate the week, water utilities, environmental advocates and other interested groups will celebrate drinking water through school events, public presentations and community festivals. They will also provide their communities with vital information on how water consumers can get to know their H2O.

AWWA will also join in the festivities in celebrating the week by hosting several special events at its headquarters office in Denver to raise funds for its scholarship program. All of the events during Drinking Water Week will center on assisting employees in understanding drinking water and its value in our daily lives.
