Recognizing Drinking Water Week is an easy way to educate the public, connect with the community, and promote employee morale. Too often, water utilities only receive negative publicity – a main break in the middle of rush hour or increasing rates. Recognizing Drinking Water Week provides an opportunity for positive communication. AWWA has compiled a toolkit for utilities to use to reach out to your employees, your customers, and your community.

Invest in the Planet!

Bring the Family!
Refreshments! – Games!
Activities – Surprises!

There will be many educational activities and presentations, hands-on activities for the young as well as those of us who are not so young.

There will be recycling infographics, the Oyster Project, E-inc., our community science group, Bootstrap Composting, an Eastie Farm/ Boston farm display, a children’s author, making bookmarks from recycled materials, exchanging children’s used books, face painting, Bubbles!, music, refreshments and much more.

We will be joined by the Boston Fire Department to talk safety and fire prevention and introduce a device for the hearing impaired to keep all of us safe. Cycleboat Boston will be offering free rides right on the harbor so come early and sign up. Giveaways and displays of children’s artwork will add to the festivities.

But the most important part of all will be the chance to meet our neighbors from all the nooks and crannies of our diverse and great community as we come together to learn, play, converse, and take in the moment, after all, “it takes a village.” So “invest in the planet” and, “invest in each other.”

** PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN WATER BOTTLE. We will have a Water Truck and small paper cups. Bring your own bottle otherwise. Thank you! **
