EPA Celebrates National Drinking Water Week
The U.S. EPA Office of Water will sponsor an event on the Woodrow Wilson Plaza outside of the Ronald Reagan Building on May 10 in Washington, D.C. The event will celebrate National Drinking Water Week, which runs from May 7 to 13, and EPA’s ongoing recognition of the 30th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act.
National Drinking Water Week was first sponsored by the American Water Works Association (AWWA). In the early 1990s, AWWA formed a coalition with several organizations including the EPA, USDA, Association of Metropolitan Water Agencies, Water Environment Federation and the Association of State Drinking Water Administrators to celebrate the week nationally.
