The public is invited to attend the Water for Life free event at Coolidge Park this Sunday, from 2 to 5 p.m. at the Walker Pavilion. This event is being organized by the Young Water Professionals as part of the annual Kentucky/Tennessee Water Professionals Conference.
More than 25 community organizations are participating in this educational event for all ages to promote the importance of water conservation and water quality in our environment. There will be food, sno-cones, games, an inflatable slide and the “People’s Choice Awards” water tasting competition.
Tennessee American Water is partnering with the City of Chattanooga to host this year’s Water Professionals Conference, which will include over 1500 participants. According to the Chattanooga Convention & Visitors Bureau, this conference will have an economic impact of $729,000.
“We are honored to be the host utility for this important conference which allows water professionals to continue providing the best services in their fields,” said Deron Allen, President of Tennessee American Water.
Kentucky and Tennessee water professionals will come together to exchange ideas and earn continuing education credits. Activities during the conference include a tour of the Tennessee American Water plant, a tour of the Moccasin Bend Treatment Facility, a member celebration at the Tennessee Aquarium, and contests for best tasting water and water pipe tapping.
The conference is co-sponsored by the Kentucky-Tennessee Water Environment Association (WEA) and the Kentucky/Tennessee Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA).
