It’s Time to Imagine a Day Without Water!

Imagine waking up and finding out there’s no water. No water for the toilet, shower, bath, sinks, icemaker, or even the outside hose. No water for coffee; or filling the pets’ bowl; no water for cooking or cleaning. Now imagine that it’s not just your home, but your entire community: no water for manufacturing; no…

This Thursday, Imagine a Day Without Water

Imagine waking up this morning and having no access to water, anywhere — not at home, at work, or anywhere in between. That means there’s no coffee or shower. There’s no way to flush the toilet. No way to wash your hands. No water to put in Fido’s bowl. Now imagine what would happen to hospitals,…

No Matter How Hot, Opening a Hydrant Isn’t Cool

2020 has certainly brought its share of challenges, including beating the heat. Pandemic restrictions in place to keep the public safe have prevented most public pools and other swimming areas from opening. Frustrations are rising along with the temperature. Still, while it might be tempting to crack open a fire hydrant and cool off, DON’T….

On Oct. 23, Imagine a Day Without Water

Can you imagine a day without water? No showers, no morning coffee, no working toilets — not even water for putting out fires. For some people, living without water is a daily reality. Yet most of us take for granted that when we turn on the tap, clean, drinkable water will flow out. That’s why…
