Forum: Imagine a day without water
The fall months are often marked by debates and discussions about the issues that divide us. Today, I will address something that unites us. Every morning we get up and brush our teeth, take a shower, and maybe make a pot of coffee. Later we may do our laundry and wash the dishes. None of this would be possible without safe and reliable water infrastructure.
On Oct. 10, the Regional Water Authority is joining a national coalition to “Imagine a Day Without Water.” This annual day of action seeks to raise awareness about the value of water and calls on our government to support investments in water infrastructure. We all need water, not just to live but to work as well. A recent report found that a single day without water in our country would result in an economic loss of $45.3 billion.
