Drinking Water Week

The Murfreesboro Water Resources Department (MWRD) and partners throughout North America are reminding water consumers that high-quality tap is “There When You Need It” during this year’s Drinking Water Week.

MWRD is observing Drinking Water Week by recognizing the vital role tap water plays in our daily lives, the infrastructure that is required to carry it to and from homes and businesses, and the critical work that water professionals accomplish around the clock. From May 2-8, MWRD is encouraging the community to get involved by taking part in activities, contests, and giveaway opportunities at our Customer Service office, located at 300 NW Broad Street, and virtuallyDrinking Water Week Doc Banner 2021

Many communities are fortunate to have reliable access to safe water when they turn on the tap. In large part, this stems from the regular testing water utilities are required to undertake to ensure regulatory standards for water quality are met. Even as we continue to undertake the coronavirus pandemic, the importance of drinking water for health, hydration, and hygiene is more prevalent than ever.
