American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced its “Protect the Source” event aimed at protecting water sources that contribute to clean drinking water.

“If we keep our rivers, lakes and underground wells free from pollution, it’s easier and less expensive to keep water safe and healthy,” AWWA writes on the event website.

AWWA is an international, nonprofit, scientific and educational society dedicated to providing total water solutions assuring the effective management of water. Founded in 1881, the Association is the largest organization of water supply professionals in the world.  Members include over 4,300 utilities that supply about 80 percent of the nation’s drinking water and treat almost half of the nation’s wastewater. Representatives from states from the east to west coasts are listed as participants in this year’s Protect the Source event, including the Arizona Department of Water Resources and the Nevada Department of Transportation.
