Who Runs the Water that Runs America

Let's Tell Your Story

Let’s make water important! 

Every day in the U.S., millions of gallons of water are pumped from reservoirs into homes, yet few Americans understand the challenges you face driving and maintaining water utilities in their communities.

We’ve created this initiative to change that. We have launched a video, a website, social media posts and other communication tools for you to use to create awareness about your, and your colleagues’, efforts in your community.

At www.whorunsthewater.com, all Americans can learn more about the water cycle, water prices, what they can do to save water and much, much more. 

So, let’s show everyone who runs the water that runs America!
