[ARCHIVED] Calling all Youth! Participate in Drinking Water Week Art Contest – May 1st to 7th

Drinking Water Week 2022

Semana Del Agua Portable 2022_SpanishPublic Works is celebrating the American Water Works Association’s (AWWA) Drinking Water Week, May 1-7, to recognize the vital role water plays in the daily lives of Warrenville residents, and educate the role Utility Division staff play to ensure there is clean, safe drinking water. It takes a lot to deliver a high-quality product, and the city drinking water is no exception.  Utility Division staff are available 24 hours a day to maintain the intricate maze of pipes that are buried underground, along with equipment like pumps and water towers, to ensure water is there when needed for Warrenville water customers.

To celebrate, staff is inviting youth to participate in an art contest, by either creating a piece of art that shows how drinking water effects the daily lives of Warrenville residents, or by coloring the 2022 Drinking Water Week sheet (link to coloring sheets in English / Spanish). During the week of May 1 to 7, entries may be featured on the City’s Facebook. At the end of the week, Public Works staff will select and announce a winner. Entries with a signed image release (link to release) will be accepted now through April 30th, and can be submitted via email to Kristin Youngmeyer at, or dropped off at 3S258 Manning Avenue in the drop box, or handed to staff.
