The Value of Water - What's it Worth to You and Your Community?
How much water will you use today? Can you imagine a day without water? What is your water service worth to you?
The value of water is often overlooked. This oversight has led to the underfunding of this critical necessity. We are able to maintain services due to the dedication of our remarkable operators, but this is becoming difficult in an increasingly challenging economy. To ensure long-term sustainability of our drinking water and wastewater systems, we must understand its importance and the funding necessary to maintain quality service that is protective of our health.
Water is essential to our everday lives! Public drinking water systems provide us with water for drinking, cooking, cleaning, and fighting fires. Public wastewater systems transport and treat our waste and keep it from polluting the environment. Without these two systems, society would not be able to function.
To learn more about the importance of drinking water and wastewater systems to our everyday lives, please review a brochure titled, "The Value of Water - What is it worth to you?" This brochure was created by a committee (the Water and Wastewater Education and Outreach Committee) comprised of stakeholders including State and local government agencies, the Environmental Protection Agency, professional associations, engineering firms, water/wastewater professionals and training providers.
Please take a few minutes to read the brochure and see what you can do to keep our water and wastewater systems providing us service today and into the future. We are all responsible for the protection of our limited resources. The health of our community, our children, and their children depend on it!
