Fond du Lac Water Utility is sponsoring a Drinking Water Week poster contest for Drinking Water Week May 1-7, 2022. Drinking Water Week is a week set aside each year to raise awareness of the benefits of tap water.
Whether it’s engineers designing pipe infrastructure, utility crews repairing a major outage, or lab technicians ensuring a reliable supply of water to your tap, water professionals are there when you need them and are essential to the success of any community. Remember and appreciate what it takes to provide a supply of safe drinking water; a complex maze of underground pipes, treatment plants, pumping stations and storage ponds ensures that your water is there when you need it.
The City of Fond du Lac Water Department is looking for children between 4K and 5 years oldand Rate to submit a themed poster “How Drinking Water Affects Your Daily Life”. The poster should show how essential tap water is to our daily lives. Children are encouraged to let their creativity run wild. Go wild with markers, crayons, glitter, or whatever you want to use to make your drawing stand out. Artwork cannot exceed 11 inches by 17 inches.
