Imagine having no water to drink or being unable to wash your hands. 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.

Imagine a Day Without Water is a national day of action on October 21 and raises awareness about the value of water. Have you ever thought about where your drinking water comes from? What about where your wastewater goes? For its seventh annual day, we urge you to take a few steps beyond imagining the reality of going without a resource as vital as water. We would like you to take action by learning about the systems that deliver water to your homes and businesses each day.
