FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

LAUREL, MD – September 8, 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 a fun, interactive public education event in downtown Silver Spring to get customers thinking about every aspect of their life that involves water.

WHO:             WSSC’s Mascot Willy Water and his friends from WSSC
