FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAUREL, MD – September 14, 2016: You can’t live without water. Your body can’t function without water.

You can’t make your coffee or tea in the morning; no shower, no toilet flushing, no water to brush your teeth or swallow medication. Your dog or cat is parched, hospitals can’t operate, fires rage, cooking is tough, cleaning is nearly impossible, restaurants go out of business, pools are reduced to concrete holes in the ground, golf courses are brown and crunchy beneath your feet. And that’s just scratching the surface.

That’s a day without water. You really can’t live without it.

That’s why WSSC is taking part in the national event, “Imagine a Day Without Water,” organized by the Value of Water Coalition.

WSSC is hosting two fun, interactive public education events to get customers thinking about every aspect of their life that involves water. The first event will be held at the Metro Shops in Hyattsville from 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. The second event will be in downtown Silver Spring from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Media is welcome at either site.
