April is Water Awareness Month

In April, Arizona Department of Water Resources (ADWR) will celebrate the Water Awareness Month (WAM) by actively promoting statewide water conservation activities, events, and resources. ADWR’s “call to action” is for Arizona residents to use water more efficiently, become aware of water conservation activities in their region, and know where to turn for information and resources.

Arizonans can learn about WAM by accessing an interactive, web-based calendar and information hub, At the end of March, we will begin to publicize this calendar statewide through the use of Twitter, Facebook, e-mail and web links. ADWR is are counting on you, as a water expert, to take part in celebrating and promoting Water Awareness Month.
