The Water Ambassador Program is an initiative of the Illinois Section American Water Works Association created to elevate public perception, knowledge, and consumer education for the water industry.
DWC has been a proud participant of the ISAWWA Water Ambassador Program since 2022.
With the help of ISAWWA, DWC aims to take greater strides in promoting industry understanding and providing useful information to individuals on the value of water and how to think differently about their own water usage.
DWC, alongside 12 other communities, was awarded the Gold Level Water Ambassador award for 2022.
Value of Water
One of the goals of the Water Ambassador Program is to help inspire and impact consumer water behavior through an improved understanding of the value of water and water infrastructure costs.
The Value of Water Campaign focuses on educating the nation on how water is essential, invaluable, and in need of investment. Check out their site to learn more.
Another goal of the Water Ambassador Program is to inform consumers on the process required to provide safe drinking water to their homes as well as the capital investment necessary to operate and maintain infrastructure.
