ACWA Region 1 Program, "Take it From the Tap: Developing a Drink Local Water Campaign"

ACWA Region 1 hosted a program on developing a regional Drink Local Water campaign at the Santa Rosa Utilities Field Office in Santa Rosa, CA on June 22, 2012.

Due to health, environmental, waste reduction and numerous other reasons, the importance of switching from bottled water and other sugary drinks to local tap water as the drink of choice is gaining momentum. To capitalize on this movement, Region 1 hosted a forum to discuss how to develop and implement a regional Local Tap Water Campaign. Attendees heard from  individual agencies regarding implementation of Drink Local Water campaigns; learned about potential partnerships with the State’s “ReThink Your Drink” campaign; learned how to take advantage of the tools available from ACWA’s Value of Water Campaign; and participated in a discussion to implement a Region 1 Drink Local Water campaign. The day concluded with a tour of the Sonoma County Water Agency’s drinking water facilities.
