Drinking Water Week


For more than 40 years the American Water Works Association and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week – a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together in recognizing the vital role water plays in our daily lives. Drinking Water Week is celebrated the first full week in May each year. Please join AWWA as we celebrate drinking water!

Visit the official Drinking Water Week website for more information and content.

You can also follow along on AWWA’s Facebook page as well as DWC’s Facebook page during the week of May 5-11, 2024 to see posts about what you can do during #DrinkingWaterWeek.
