Most Americans take water, and the systems that bring it to and from homes and businesses, for granted. They turn on the tap, and safe drinking water reliably comes out. El Paso Water is encouraging educators to start the conversation with their students about the importance of water in our daily lives.

Use the resources below to participate with us in the nationwide "Imagine a Day Without Water" on September 15th. Show the videos to your class and engage in a discussion with the Q & A document, or use one of the many lesson plans. Whatever you do take pictures of your class and send to or post them on Twitter or Facebook and tag us @EPWater with the hashtag #ValueWater by September 14, 2016.

Thank you for helping us spread awareness of the value of water!
