North Port Joins Fifth Annual “Imagine a Day Without Water”

The City of North Port has joined elected officials, water utilities, community leaders, educators, and businesses from across the country as part of the fifth annual Imagine a Day Without Water vent, a nationwide day of education and advocacy about the value of water. Led by the Value of Water Campaign, a thousand organizations across the country will raise awareness about not taking water for granted and the crucial need for investment in our nation’s water systems.

The City joined Imagine a Day Without Water to draw attention the increasing demands put upon our area resources as well as options that are available to decrease the usage of potable water. The City of North Port offers reclaimed water service to specific areas within the community which can offset the demand for potable water. At a significant cost savings, reclaimed water can be utilized to water lawns and landscaping, as well as be used for washing vehicles, or used in decorative fountains.
