HCWA Celebrating World Water Day with Customer Appreciation on March 22

The Henry County Water Authority (HCWA) is celebrating World Water Day by distributing free water bottles, with valuable water conservation and pollution prevention information included, to better inform, educate, and show appreciation for its customers.

This Customer Appreciation will be held on Wednesday March 22, from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the HCWA Headquarters, Customer Service counter and drive-thru, located at 1696 Highway 20 W. in McDonough.

World Water Day is a global campaign established to encourage people to act more responsibly in their own lives to change the way they use, consume, and manage water. Some suggested courses of action for HCWA customers include:

* Conserve Water – by taking shorter showers or by not letting the tap run when brushing teeth, washing dishes, or preparing food.

* Fix Household Leaks – World Water Day falls during national Fix-A-Leak Week (March 20-26, 2023), which is a public education and outreach event of the U.S. EPA to encourage people to find and fix household water leaks.

* Don’t Pollute – by placing food waste, oils, grease, medicines, wipes, chemicals, or other non-dispersible items (things that don’t break down) in the toilet or drain. And if you have a septic tank, maintain/empty those as needed. Sewer overflows from any of these causes can pollute our water!

* Clean Up – by taking part in a local cleanup impacting rivers, streams, or other water bodies. Henry County Rivers Alive is a great opportunity to do so, as our annual cleanup is scheduled for Thursday Oct. 5, 2023.

* Protect Nature – by planting a tree, creating a rain garden, or using natural solutions to address environmental concerns, such as reducing the risk and impact of flooding. 

* Learn More – about the drinking water production process and issues HCWA Water Professionals face every day by touring one of our two water plants.
