AWWA Declares Sept. 26 - Oct. 2 Source Water Protection Week

Sept. 3, 2021

Throughout the week, AWWA and many other organizations will be raising awareness about the importance of protecting precious drinking water sources.

The American Water Works Association (AWWA) invites water utilities, consumers and other partners to join the Association in declaring Sept. 26 - Oct. 2 the first-ever “Source Water Protection Week.”

Throughout the week, AWWA and many other organizations will be raising awareness about the importance of protecting precious drinking water sources, according to the AWWA press release. AWWA Source Water Protection Week materials are now available online, and additional resources will be added between now and Sept. 26.

“AWWA and many other organizations at the federal, state and local level recognize the need to join forces to advance the protection of limited drinking water at the source,” said AWWA President Chi Ho Sham in the press release. “This includes sharing tools and information, collecting data, supporting assessment and protection plans and encouraging upstream entities to take on shared responsibility.”

As part of Source Water Protection Week, AWWA is hosting a #ShowYourSource social media contest. Beginning Sept. 26, utilities and partner organizations are encouraged to post photos or short videos showcasing their precious water sources using the #ShowYourSource hashtag.

More information about Source Water Protection Week is available on AWWA’s Source Water Protection resource page.
