Houston, Texas – Houston Public Works will join organizations across the country for the fifth annual “Imagine a Day Without Water,” a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water.
No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops. A single nationwide day without water would put $43.5 billion in economic activity at risk.
Take the pledge to not take water for granted and tell us what you would miss without water.
Show us what a day without water would mean to you on social media. Like @HouPublicWorks on Facebook, tag us in your posts and use the hashtags: #ValueWater #HouPublicWorks
