Ottawa, IL – Cheers to clean water! That will be the toast when partygoers lift their glasses at the upcoming “No Water, No Beer” event in Ottawa.
Carus Corporation is teaming up with the Illinois Section of the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to host the awareness/networking event, to be held in the Tangled Roots Tap Room at the Lone Buffalo Brew Pub October 12. The event will feature Tangled Roots brewery tours, beer, wine, live music, and hors d’oeuvres. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.isawwa.org/event/October_2017-NWNB. Pre-registration is required.
Similar “No Water, No Beer” events have been popular throughout the state. The Ottawa event, which is expected to draw locals as well as water professionals from across the region, is part of a nearly 60-year partnership between event sponsor Carus and AWWA. Headquartered in Peru, IL, Carus manufactures products that help provide clean drinking water for communities across the United States and around the world. The Illinois Section AWWA's mission is to provide resources for the management and advocacy of safe and sustainable water in Illinois.
“To many Americans, water infrastructure is invisible. We take for granted the fact that we can turn on a faucet and instantly have clean water. Water plays a vital role in every moment of our lives,” said Carlos Hevia of Carus Corporation. “On average, beer is about 90% water, so No Water, No Beer is a fun way to celebrate the importance of clean water as well as the water industry professionals who make it possible.”
The event is scheduled to coincide with “Imagine a Day Without Water,” (www.imagineadaywithoutwater.org) an international campaign aimed at increasing water awareness, and the reason your news feeds may be filled with #ValueWater on October 12. Carus will be advocating the importance of clean water across all of its social media platforms, including live feeds from “No Water, No Beer.”
