Today is the third annual Imagine a Day Without Water, a nationwide event of education and advocacy about the value of water. Led by the Value of Water Campaign, the goal is to raise awareness about the crucial need for investment in America’s water infrastructure to ensure everyone has safe and reliable water.
I don’t want to imagine having to live without easy access to clean drinking water. I am proud to work for MeterSYS, a company that aims to improve the sustainability and efficiency of our public water utilities. We have a responsibility to be conscientious users of this precious resource and must rise to the challenge of being good stewards of our inherited and rapidly aging infrastructure that treats, stores, and distributes it. As I think of a world without water, I vacillate between the hardships it would create (honest disclosure, my first thought was no coffee!!) and the optimism that there are entirely too many intelligent and motivated individuals focused on preventing this, my colleagues at MeterSYS included, for this to happen.
Please join me and MeterSYS in supporting the Value of Water campaign to Imagine a Day Without Water. I believe that everyone deserves reliable, affordable, clean water and I promise to continue to work to make imagining a world without that only a thought exercise and not a reality.
