Think about all the things you do in a day that require water and imagine a day in Houston without water. What would your day be like without water? How might you use water differently?

Some communities in America already know how impossible it is to try to go a day without our most precious resource: Water. But many Americans take water for granted every day.

City of Houston will join thousands of organizations as part of Imagine a Day Without Water to help raise awareness and education America about the value of water. Houstonian students from 1st to 8th grade are invited to write an essay up to 300 words about what it would be like to be without water for a chance to win $200!

All entries must be emailed to waterworks@houstontx.gov by October 16, 2019. To learn more, download the flyer or call 832-395-3791.
