Illinois Section AWWA - E-Splash - November 2012
WATER FOUNTAIN TRAILER VISITS EVANSTON
Did you know the Illinois Section has available for use a
trailer which was designed as an excellent educational tool at any local
function – especially during the summer months?
The trailer is set up to provide water via drinking fountains and hand
washing stations using a simple hose connection. There are excellent graphics that adorn the
trailer with discussions on the water cycle, water efficiency and water uses. There are photos here and on the website so take
a look. I share this with you now so
that anyone interested can plan ahead and reserve your date now!
At this point, the trailer is used some 15
times per year, mostly at festivals and activities during the summer
months. In Evanston, we have used it
several times for our "Paint Evanston Purple Day” joint function with
Northwestern University at Ryan Field Football Stadium for a September
game. We have also used it at our
Farmer’s Market during National Drinking Water Week as well as our annual Green
Living Festival. If your community has a
special celebration during the spring, summer or fall, using the water trailer
is a great way to promote your water utility as well as the use of Tap
Water…Good for You…Good for the Environment!
Reserve the water trailer for your event in 2013 by completing this online form.
