WPB Joins Seventh Annual “Imagine a Day Without Water”
WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (October 13, 2022) – Mayor Keith James joins elected officials, water utilities, community leaders, educators, and businesses from across the country as part of the seventh annual Imagine a Day Without Water, a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water.
Led by the U.S. Water Alliance’s Value of Water Campaign, over a thousand organizations across the country will join Imagine a Day Without Water on Thursday, October 20, 2022, to raise awareness about the role of water infrastructure in our lives and the importance of investment. The focus of this year’s event is to invite #OneWaterPledge and learn more about where our water comes from and where our wastewater goes.
WPB will have an educational display in the Urban Living Room outside the Mandel Public Library, inside the library, and in other areas within the City Center.
“Our goal is to raise awareness about how valuable of a resource water is for our community,” said Sarah Burke, Sustainability Supervisor. “The Imagine a Day Without Water campaign reminds us of the importance of clean, reliable water and investment in water infrastructure.”
Imagine a Day Without Water was envisioned as an advocacy and education day that asked Americans to think about what it would mean to go without water for a day. There are already two million Americans living without water service. With the stress of climate change and the challenges of maintaining water infrastructure, there is growing concern about the stability of water supplies and services.

The Value of Water Campaign inspires the nation by building public support and political will to invest in water infrastructure and deliver an equitable and sustainable water future for all.
