National Drinking Water Week 2018

Welcome to National Drinking Water Week 2018! The Virginia Department of Health, Office of Drinking Water joins hundreds of towns, cities, counties, states and other organizations from across the country in celebrating this annual event.

Established 40 years ago, this observance highlights a resource many Americans take for granted; clean, safe tap water. This year’s theme, Protect the Source, brings into focus the need to safeguard the natural bodies of water from which we draw our water for treatment and subsequent distribution.

Waterworks operators work year round to protect our source waters. Other businesses, farms among them, also do their part. What can you do? Find out here.
