Clarksville, TN – On Wednesday, October 23rd, 2019, the Clarksville Gas and Water Department will join utilities and organizations across the country for the fifth annual “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign, a day of education and advocacy about the value of water.
Clarksville will be one of a thousand organizations nationwide raising awareness about water and the crucial need for investment in public water systems.
Clarksville Gas and Water will host an open house from 10:00am to 2:00pm October 23rd at the City water treatment plant and invites the community to come out and meet local drinking water providers. Councilwoman Valerie Guzman, chair of the City Council Gas and Water Committee, will present an “Imagine a Day Without Water” proclamation from Clarksville Mayor Joe Pitts and facility tours will begin at 11:00am.
Please call the water plant at 931.553.2440 to sign up and get directions.
Turning on the tap for clean, safe drinking water, and flushing the toilet with no second thought about what happens to wastewater, are actions most Americans take for granted every day. But drought, flooding, and population changes are stressing water and wastewater systems.
While most Americans enjoy reliable water service, the nation’s water infrastructure is aging and in need of investment. A day without water service would be a public health and an economic disaster, and it’s estimated a single day without water would put an estimated $43.5 billion in economic activity at risk.
As Clarksville grows, water system managers and local officials continually work to meet future demands on water and wastewater services. Learn more at www.imagineadaywithoutwater.org and follow the conversation on social media at #ValueWater.
