Drinking Water Week in British Columbia (May 13-19)

As it turns out, one of my current research projects is on drinking water, so it was kind of timely that I was informed about this week’s Drinking Water Week in British Columbia, taking place from May 13th through 19th.

The organizers also would like to ask you to take the pledge to be more water wise.

Drinking Water Week is taking place May 13th – 19th, 2012. This is a province-wide campaign raising awareness of our water in BC. We want British Columbians to learn more about their water and what they can do to protect it, and to celebrate the people and processes that bring clean water to our taps. All across BC there will be community events, watershed and treatment plant tours, open houses, and information sessions.

We have also set up the Community Water Challenge – if anyone takes a simple pledge to be more water wise, they are automatically entered into a contest for a water-themed getaway courtesy of the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel and Helijet.

I’m glad that the BC Waste and Water Association is taking steps to encourage Vancouverites to drink tap water rather than bottled water. Check out their website for more information.
