To honor Imagine a Day Without Water, we’re lifting up calls to action for critical federal investment in water infrastructure and celebrating arts and culture workers inspiring the movement.
Water infrastructure is the lifeline of our communities. Most water systems are more than a century old. There are millions in the U.S. living without safe and reliable water and wastewater services, often relying on bottled water, and potentially living in unsafe and unsanitary conditions.
Extreme weather events and climate events, such as droughts, hurricanes, storms, flooding, and wildfires are happening more often and are intensifying due to climate change. These disasters overwhelm our aging water infrastructure and can leave communities without reliable access to safe water and wastewater services for days, weeks or months.
Now and every day, it’s important for us all to think about where our water comes from and why now is the time to invest in safe, clean, and reliable drinking water and sanitation.
