Observing Expanded Water Quality Awareness

Posted March 23, 2011

By Sharon Miller, Professional Engineer


This is my second time as a judge of North American entries in the World Water Monitoring Day Awards Program, and it was really very exciting to have geographically diverse entries representing events from all over the U.S.  The entries were mainly from groups, schools or businesses unrelated to our water quality community... this is very encouraging for those of us in this profession to see.  I am hopeful that some of these young people touched by this program will Work for Water in the future. Our country definitely needs their energy, excitement, creativity and future leadership. 

All of these WWMD events contribute to expanded water quality awareness, and that’s what the awards are recognizing. In the past, the U.S. citizens may have felt that basic water quality issues like sanitation and supply were for third world countries. But as we see related water issues hitting closer to home in places like Las Vegas and Atlanta in recent news, there’s clearly a need to build awareness and encourage public stewardship of the water environment.  Water supply and clean water cannot continue to be taken for granted.

Everyone from small children to grandparents can easily use the WWMD testing kit!  It is a fun and easy way to boost awareness and get the public involved in water quality protection and conservation—just what’s needed to help protect our water for future generations.
