COVID-19 Is A Great Reminder of The Importance of Water in Our Daily Lives

waterEvery year Columbus Water Works joins thousands of other utilities and community leaders to promote the importance of drinking water in a National Awareness Campaign known as "Imagine A Day Without Water." This campaign is designed to start a conversation reflecting on how important water is in our daily lives. If there were a catastrophe and we no longer had a clean, safe and reliable drinking water supply, how would that impact you? 

Today, every community around the world is being impacted by COVID-19 in various ways from economic hardships and lost jobs to uncontrollable sickness and lives being lost. Health Officials are stressing the importance of personal hygiene and disinfecting commonly touched areas to help mitigate the spread of this new virus.  And suddenly the need for safe, clean drinking water became a top priority for many people.

As Water Professionals, our staff continues to work and deliver clean, safe and reliable drinking water to every business and resident of Muscogee County and Fort Benning. Working in the background our men and women continued supporting our hospitals, fire departments, manufacturers, farmers and every home and business in our community. Although this pandemic has not interrupted the reliable supply of drinking water, it has perhaps reminded us just how vital drinking water is to our every day lives. 

If you are looking for ways you can help, we urge you to reach out to community agencies such as United Way of the Chattahoochee Valley, or the Community Foundation.  There is still need in our community and we can still lend a helping hand while practicing social distancing. 

Thank you for allowing us to serve you during these uncertain times! As we all begin slowly resuming our “normal lives” we urge everyone to continue to practice proper hygiene, wear face masks to protect yourself and the person standing near you and continue to show compassion for each other. Remember, we are all impacted by this pandemic in different ways.
