#ValueWater - Tampa Bay Water


Can You Imagine a Day Without Water?

Tampa Bay Water’s and its members' water supply infrastructure brings more than 2.5 million residents an average of 180 million gallons of water per day and is essential to the public health, quality of life, environment, and economic vitality of the Tampa Bay region.

Imagine a Day Without Water is an organized effort to educate our community about why water is an essential, invaluable resource, highlighting the critical importance of access to reliable, clean water and the need for water infrastructure investments necessary to maintain and rebuild these vital systems.

A day without water would be a public health and safety crisis due to the impacts that would limit the abilities of safety personnel such as firefighters and hospitals staff to do their jobs, as well as businesses and homes to function. Living even just one day without water would be an economic crisis, considering a single nationwide day without water service would put billions in economic activity at risk.

Our water infrastructure supports every facet of our daily lives and faces unique challenges. These challenges look different to different communities and will require local solutions, but it’s clear that investment in our water systems must be a priority.

Tampa Bay Water is dedicated to investing in clean, safe and reliable water infrastructure and calls on our federal and state partners to bring much-needed funding and innovation to protect our critical water infrastructure.

See what our community has to say about a day without water.
