    On October 21, we are taking a moment to reflect on one of, if not the most important, resources on our planet: water, in honor of Imagine a Day Without Water. Water is a basic human need to survive biologically, but it is also quite crucial to how we function as a society. This day is not only important to step back and appreciate water, but also to learn about some of the mechanisms by which we utilize it and how we can use it more efficiently.

    Here at ACUA, we have been tracking the impacts of the coronavirus and subsequent stay-at-home orders on waste trends across both our solid waste and wastewater divisions.
