Terrebonne Parish DRINKING WATER WEEK Proclamation 2019

The Water Community Invites Consumers To ‘Protect the Source’ During Drinking Water Week

Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Waterworks District #1 kicked off this year’s Drinking Water Week with an invitation to “Protect the Source” throughout Terrebonne Parish.

Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Waterworks District #1, the American Water Works Association and the water community across North America will celebrate Drinking Water Week by recognizing the vital role drinking water plays in daily lives. Focus will be placed on ways in which water consumers can take personal responsibility in caring for their tap water and protecting it at its source.

    Day 1 – Introduction to theme of “Protect the Source”

    We’re kicking off #DrinkingWaterWeek today! Celebrate by caring for your #tapwater and protecting it at its source. #ProtecttheSource #AWWA #terrebonnewater

    Day 2 – Get to know your local water source

    Drinking Water Week continues! This is a good time to get to know your tap water and find out where your drinking water source is. Review your Consumer Confidence Report or talk to your water utility.

    Day 3 – Eliminate lead pipes and plumbing from homes

    This Drinking Water Week is a good time to check and replace lead-based water pipes and plumbing in your home. Talk to a plumber and your local water utility about doing that!

    Day 4 – Water Pollution Prevention

    The storm drain system consists of gutters, storm drains, and channels. Most of our rainwater travels through the storm drain system. The largest source of stormwater pollution results from every day activities.

    Day 5 – Encourage conservation practices

    Drinking Water Week is ending! Check out our conservation tips to help preserve tap water and protect our precious water resources. See you in 2020!
