Loudoun Water, 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.

To commemorate the week, water utilities, water organizations, government entities, environmental advocates, schools and other stakeholders will celebrate the importance of drinking water through presentations, events and festivals to provide information on how consumers can understand and appreciate their water. Loudoun Water will attend Kinkora Heronfest on Saturday, May 12th and will be discussing how to protect our watershed.

Things you can do at home to celebrate Drinking Water Week includes knowing how to find and fix leaks, caring for your home's pipes and knowing about the current construction projects in our community.

For younger audiences, Loudoun Water has an interactive exhibit called the Aquiary, which welcomed over 700 hundred visitors last year. Local community groups and children are invited to visit and gain a better understanding about where our drinking water comes from and how it is treated. A lot of work goes on to make sure our customers are receiving clean, healthy drinking water.

Additionally, Loudoun Water publishes annual consumer confidence water quality reports each year as a requirement under the Safe Drinking Water Act. These reports provide information about where your water comes from, what's added, how it is treated, tests that are performed, information on fluoride, and quality evaluation. We encourage you to take the time to read through them and contact our Customer Relations team with any questions you may have at 571-291-7880.
