Help the Hooch LogoColumbus Water Works is dedicated to improving the quality of life of our community. We believe in supporting programs that promote our goal of environmental stewardship, which is one of our core values. The care of our environment is critical to the enhancement of our community.

This Saturday, October 1, 2016, we will join over 35 organizations in supporting Keep Columbus Beautiful Commission’s initiative to ensure the cleanliness of our environment. The Annual Help-the-Hooch and Watershed Festival is the single largest clean-up project encompassing Muscogee County, Harris County, Ft. Benning, and Russell County in Alabama. Volunteers will help remove debris and other material that should not be in the river. The festival, following immediately afterwards, will allow groups and companies to come and display what they are doing to help our community.

The river and waterway clean-up will begin at 8:00 am and finish at 11:00 am. The Watershed Festival will be held at Woodruff Park, 100 Bay Avenue, Columbus, GA 31901, beginning at 11 a.m. and ending at 1 p.m. We encourage you to come out and make a difference by helping to protect the water and keeping the environment clean.

On September 15, Columbus Water Works (CWW) will join more than 300 other water professionals, elected officials, non-profit organizations and water providers across the Nation to raise awareness about the importance of water by recognizing “Imagine a Day without Water”.

Organized by the Value of Water Coalition, the National Education Campaign designated September 15, 2016 as a day to emphasize the important role water plays in our Nation’s public health and economic foundation. It is an opportunity for everyone who cares about safe and reliable water to recognize the importance and value of our most essential resource - water. Through social media and other communication platforms, “Imagine A Day without Water” is promoting conversations on how water is essential, invaluable, and worthy of investment.

Can you “Imagine a Day without Water?”

The intricate system of facilities and pipes, mostly deep underground that move and treat our drinking water is often forgotten. But could you imagine a day without any water - a day without safe, reliable water and wastewater service? A day without water means no water comes out of your tap to brush your teeth. When you flush the toilet, nothing happens. It means firefighters have no water to put out fires, farmers couldn’t water their crops, and doctors couldn’t wash their hands before they treat patients.

The water professionals at the Columbus Water Works recognize the vital role safe and reliable water plays in our community and we use a proactive approach to protect our citizens from facing A day without Water. We have developed a deliberate process, which is applied throughout our organization, to address aging infrastructure maintenance and replacement as well as future planning to accommodate the growing population’s water and wastewater needs.

One major component of this planning process is our Master Plan, which forecasts system needs for 25 years. It is updated every five (5) years, allowing for an accurate plan and funding allocation for current projects. To learn more about our planning process, please visit our website at www.cwwga.org.

The terrorist attack on September 11, 2001 was a devastating event in American history. This attack claimed over 3,000 people and more than 400 police officers and firefighters. The courage displayed by these first responders saved the lives of many Americans.

As the towers of the World Trade Center collapsed, our first responders were determined to rescue as many people as possible. They diligently searched for missing people, treated the wounded, and cleared the rubble so life could move forward. Without their bravery, we would have lost many more lives.  The selflessness displayed that day and the weeks to follow showed the world America’s strength and compassion.  Without the daily sacrifices of our first responders, America would not be the strong, united country we are today.

We encourage the community to take a moment of silence tomorrow, Sunday, September 11 at 8:46 am in remembrance of those who lost their lives and for those who risked their lives for one another during this tragedy.

A special thank you goes out to all of our first responders for the daily risks you continue to take to protect our country. You are our heroes.
