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!
The most important water story in your community is the one you can tell - the local story. Show how many customers you serve each day and the gallons of water you provide. We’ve made it quick and easy for you to make a video to tell and share information about your water or wastewater utility.
You can now highlight the role you, your colleagues and your water utility play in your local area. It's completely free and takes just a couple of minutes to produce.
