Flush the toilet, and dirty water goes away.When you have reliable water service, you dont have to think twice about the infrastructure that brings you water, and then safely returns water to the environment but we all should.Thats why the City of Ashland and APRC are hosting a full week of free programingso you can KNOW your water systems and LOVE YOUR WATER.This week is part of our participation in the Imagine a Day Without Water campaign. October 23 is an international day of action when schools, municipalities, businesses, utilities and citizens work to improve water systems.Learn more at ImagineADayWithoutWater.org Consider what a day would be like if you couldnt turn on the tap and get clean drinking water, or if you flushed the toilet and wastewater didnt go anywhere. What would firefighters do? Could hospitals be sanitary without clean tap water, or without wastewater service? Would restaurants and hotels be able to serve guests? Would farmers be able to water their crops or care for their livestock? Our water infrastructure supports every facet of our daily lives, but our water infrastructure is facing unprecedented challenges. Demographic changes and climate pressures, including natural disasters like droughts, flooding and wildfires, threaten our infrastructure and increase the possibility of a day without water. This campaign is an opportunity to share why water is important to you, your business, your community.
