Roswell’s Water Utility Division will give citizens an opportunity to explore the process for safe drinking water at its annual Drinking Water Festival on May 4.

This free event will be held at the Roswell Water Treatment Plant at 100 Dobbs Drive from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

“The city’s Drinking Water Festival is a great time to focus on learning more about how we maintain a safe and sustainable supply of drinking water to protect our communities’ health and vitality,” said Vicki Culbreth, Environmental Education Coordinator and Keep Roswell Beautiful Executive Director.

The event will give guests the opportunity to tour the water plant and learn more about the source of drinking water and how it is treated. Participants can also enjoy a free cookout, children’s activities and giveaways, learn about water conservation and sign up for the AquaHawk water monitoring system.

This event kicks off the National Safe Drinking Water Week, May 5 to 11.

Each year the American Water Works Association and other organizations, including the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, sponsor this week to provide a unique opportunity for water professionals and the communities they serve to come together to recognize the vital role water plays in daily lives, discover water conservation practices and ways to protect our source waters from pollution.
