Water Learning Center

Our Water Learning Center providers some in depth information about how water makes it way to your tap, as well as helpful tips that require minimal effort and provide meaningful impact.

We are all responsible for protecting our water supply. If everyone does their part, we can all help to ensure we have clean, safe, affordable drinking water for generations to come.

Illinois American Water Offers Student Art Contest in Conjunction with National “Imagine a Day Without Water” Event

It’s hard to imagine even just one day without water. We need water to make a cup of coffee, grow fruits and vegetables, and manufacture nearly every product we use in our daily lives. We also need water to fight fires and for public health. While essential, many still take for granted the value of water and the systems that bring water to and from homes and businesses all day, every day.

This is why Illinois American Water is inviting 3rd, 4th and 5th grade classrooms within the Company’s service area to participate in an “Imagine a Day Without Water” art contest. Winning students will win their classroom a $100 donation. Artwork may also be featured in a future bill insert and other communication pieces.

This art contest is being offered in conjunction with the Value of Water Coalition’s 3rd Annual “Imagine a Day Without Water” event on Oct. 12, 2017. All across the nation, events and activities will take place to highlight the important, and often taken for granted, role our drinking water plays. Winners of Illinois American Water’s art contest will be announced publicly on Oct. 12, 2017.

Participation in the “Imagine a Day Without Water” art contest is easy. Students are asked to draw a picture and write one sentence that describes what water service and a day without water means to them.
