Imagine a Day Without Water - October 21, 2020



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.” Hundreds of other water agencies across the country are joining this effort. 

This year, as communities across America face the public health threat of the coronavirus pandemic, water and wastewater systems continue to do their job, 24/7, keeping the water flowing. Many Americans take water for granted every day. But what would a day be like without water? Imagine a Day Without Water 2020 is the sixth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water. 

We want our community’s help in spreading the word about October 21 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 2020 Imagine a Day Without Water!

This short video 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.
