The third annual Imagine a Day Without Water took place on the 12th October. Â Schools and workplaces participated with utilities and water organizations to look at how much we depend on water. Â
The True Value of Water
The recent hurricanes that have seen thousands of people having their access to clean, safe water cut off, highlight just how vital water is to our health and well being. Â
Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. Â Imagine a Day Without Water 2017Â isÂ the thirdÂ annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.

Some of the ways we depend on water are more obvious than others, but the Value of Water Campaign, which is behind Imagine a Day Without Water, seeks to really help us understand why water is so precious. Â For example, the Value of water Campaign asks us to imagine:
- No water to drink, or to make coffee with
- No water to shower
- No water to flush the toilet
- No water to do the laundry
- No water for hospitals
- No water for firefighters to put out fires
- No water for farmers to water their crops
Pretty sobering stuff, right?
Itâ€™s also important that we think about the condition of the water that we drink. Â Americaâ€™s water pipelines are in bad shape and lack of funding for the extensive repairs needed is impacting on the quality of the water being channeled into peopleâ€™s homes. Â
Bottled water has been under the microscope â€“ literally â€“ after reports of what is in the bottle, and what definitely shouldn’t be in the bottle hit the headlines. Â Â
