Imagine a Day Without Water
Oct 21 all-day
Imagine a Day Without Water

No water to drink, or even to make coffee with. No water to shower, flush the toilet, or do laundry. Hospitals would close without water. Firefighters couldn’t put out fires and farmers couldn’t water their crops.

Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day. Imagine a Day Without Water 2020 is the sixth annual day to raise awareness and educate America about the value of water.
