Our Water Systems
Water. The average American family uses 300 gallons of it per day just in their home. It’s vital to every living thing on this planet and essential to practically everything we do. Health, sustainability, transportation, agriculture, economic development – clean water gives life to it all.
This is why it’s so important to protect it. Clean water is essential to the future of our community and a more vibrant Richmond. So whether it’s keeping fats out of drains, picking up litter or trading bottled water for tap, we can all do our part to preserve the health of our waterways and improve the quality of life for everything and everyone.
