National Water Week
Children at the museum will celebrate National Drinking Water Week starting Sunday. Tennessee American Water will teach kids the importance of safe and reliable drinking water and the role clean water plays in our health and economy in the communities across the globe.
"Of all of our needs, water is the single most important," said Daphne Kirksey. External Affairs Manager at Tennessee American Water, "We need it to drink, cook and clean. We need it for sanitation, fire protection, supporting the economy, and assuring our overall quality of life."
Also as a part of the initiative, the museum will install signs near various water-related areas in the building such as its RiverPlay exhibit, drinking fountains and restrooms featuring educational facts about water conservation for children and families. These include reminders such as"About 60% of the human body is made up of water."
