EVENT: World Water Day march turns students' attention to lake, resources
Your Sewer District partnered with Drink Local. Drink Tap. along with the Cleveland Division of Water and other partners to help more than 200 local middle- and high-school students better understand the value of clean water and our own water resources.
In celebration of World Water Day, DLDT coordinated a march from Cleveland City Hall to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum in which each student carried at least four liters of water. The action symbolized the long walk many young people in other countries must walk to fetch water for their families, and their daily struggles against water-borne diseases.
NewsChannel 5 was there and interviewed Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson and DLDT's Erin Huber to learn more about the event. Our own Wally Waterdrop even made an appearance.
