Drinking Water Week is May 2-8

Drinking Water Week 2021

Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Utilities and partners throughout North America are observing Drinking Water Week May 2-8 to recognize 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 make sure your water is “There When You Need It.”

Whether it’s an engineer designing a capital project, a treatment plant operator ensuring the safety and quality of drinking water or a member of a utilities field crew maintaining the infrastructure in our community, water professionals work around the clock to ensure state and federal regulatory standards for water quality are met.

Drinking Water Week is a reminder for everyone that water is our most valuable natural resource. Only tap water delivers a key public health requirement, provides fire protection and supports the economy. We are all stewards of the environment and are called upon to help protect source waters from pollution, learn more about the safety of tap water, and practice water conservation.
