Imagine a Day Without Water - October 10, 2018



Water is essential to our life in so many ways, but its importance is often forgotten. That’s why Water Management has become a partner in a nationwide educational effort called “Imagine a Day Without Water.” Hudnreds of other water agencies across the country are joining this effort.

We want our community’s help in spreading the word about October 10 and Imagine a Day Without Water. The City of Durham Department of Water Management invites all Durham teens to join us in participating in the Value of Water Campaign’s 2018 Imagine a Day Without Water!

This challenge is designed to engage Durham high school students in the nation-wide event “Imagine a Day Without Water,” hosted by the Value of Water Campaign. The purpose of Imagine a Day Without Water is to bring attention to the neglected water systems in America. It has become commonplace in the United States to take water and wastewater infrastructure and systems for granted, with little consideration for what life would be like without adequate water services.
