Spring Hill joins thousands across nation in declaring Oct. 23, 'Imagine a Day Without Water'

The annual A Day Without Water awareness campaign

This month, the City of Spring Hill is joining elected officials, water utilities, local governments, community leaders, educators, and businesses across the country in creating awareness for the fifth annual Imagine a Day Without Water, on Oct. 23, a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water. Led by the Value of Water Campaign, 1,000 organizations across the country will raise awareness about not taking water for granted and the crucial need for investment in our nation’s water systems.

An investment in our drinking water and wastewater systems is essential to our national health, safety, environment, and economic prosperity. Spring Hill Mayor Rick Graham kicked off Spring Hill’s recognition of the “Imagine a Day Without Water” campaign by reading a proclamation at the Oct. 7 BOMA meeting. It declared Oct. 23 as Imagine A Day Without Water Day, as a reminder that we should never take for granted turning on the tap for clean, safe drinking water, or flushing the toilet without a second thought about what happens to wastewater. We should all be aware that drought, flooding, and population changes are stressing our water and wastewater systems. A day without water would not only be an inconvenience, but a fire hazard, a serious environmental concern, and an economic catastrophe. A single nationwide day without water service in the U.S. would put an estimated $43.5 billion in economic activity at risk. 

While most Americans enjoy reliable water service, our nation’s water infrastructure is aging and in need of investment. In Spring Hill, our city is growing so quickly that we are already planning for another future expansion of both of our City of Spring Hill water and wastewater treatment facilities.

Imagine a Day Without Water is an opportunity for diverse organizations, from environmental advocates to coffee shops, aquariums to car washes, city halls to water utilities, to talk about why water is important to them. Over the past five years, this national campaign has provided a platform for educating the public and advocating for leaders to prioritize investing in water today, so in the future no American will have to imagine a day without water. #ValueWater.
