Drinking Water Week (DWW), May 4th - 10th, is a province wide campaign organized by BC Water and Waste Association (BCWWA) and supported by the Province of BC. The goal of this week is to raise awareness of the value of our water and the need to protect and conserve it, as well as the people and processes involved in getting clean water to our taps and returning it safely to the environment.
Though the photo contest will be concluded with DWW on May 10th, the Watershed Friendly Yard campaign will continue throughout the summer! Submit your outdoor water wise photo at any time throughout the summer to receive a Watershed Friendly Yard sign**, proudly display how you care for our drinking water all summer long! Submit your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org or post them on Social Media using #WatershedFriendlyYard. (**Signs available while quantities last, one sign per household)
For Drinking Water Week 2014, school presentations for Elementary children and a school drawing contest will also be completed. Interactive watershed presentations will take place from April 28th - May 10th, to book a presentation or for more information on the drawing contest please contact Lauren.
