(October 19, 2023) -- Water is often called the “invisible utility” because you can’t see the pipes and other infrastructure that brings water to your tap, so it’s easy to take it for granted. In fact, many people never think about what goes into providing safe, reliable water service to their home or business unless there’s a problem.
Fortunately OLWS works hard to ensure that our customers have safe, reliable water 24 hours a day, every day. This requires constant care and management of a complex network of water infrastructure and extensive planning to address population growth, new and changing regulations, seismic hazards, climate change, and more.
October 19 is the ninth annual Imagine a Day Without Water, an opportunity to reflect on the value of water and its central role in everything we do. Join us in taking some extra time to think about how you value our region’s water today, and every day.
