PRINCE FREDERICK, Md. –April 30, 2018The Calvert County Board of County Commissioners invites citizens to participate in “Drinking Water Week,”May 6-12, to promote the importance of clean drinking water. Clean water is a valuable resource that plays a vital role in the daily lives of citizens.

The theme of this year’s Drinking Water Week is “Protect the Source” to draw attention to issues involving water pollution, water conservation and education on local water issues. Participate in Drinking Water Week by learning about your public water systems, the infrastructure that supports these systems and the Calvert County Department of Public Works, Water and Sewerage Division, which provides clean, safe drinking water to citizens in designated areas throughout Calvert County.

Not only does the Water and Sewerage Division provide clean drinking water to citizens, but the county was awarded an Annual Water Taste Challenge Award in 2015 and 2016 for the excellent quality of water. The award is given by the Chesapeake Section of the American Water Works Association (CSAWWA) – an organization dedicated to managing and treating water.
