March 22 is World Water Day

MIAMI (March 21, 2016)

You can participate in a world-wide event on Tuesday, March 22 by observing World Water Day and doing your part to conserve water. World Water Day is an international observance and an opportunity to learn more about water related issues, be inspired to tell others and take action to make a difference.

The United Nations General Assembly designated March 22, 1993 as the first World Water Day.

“Regardless of the differences between nationalities, ethnicities, gender and so, one thing all members of the human race have in common is the need for clean, safe drinking water and I encourage all of WASD’s customers to not only be aware of the conservation of water on this special day, but every day,” said WASD Director Lester Sola. “The small changes we make in our daily routines can have far reaching impacts for not only our local future generations, but positive world-wide implications, as well.”

WASD operates an award-winning conservation program where residents can learn water-saving tips, but also take advantage of conservation rebates, as well.

It is the priority of the Miami-Dade Water and Sewer Department to provide safe, reliable service to its customers. For additional information about Department services and programs, click here.
