Water conservation

Water for Life Festival at Jacobson Park on July 17

Come to Jacobson Park this Sunday for a day of water-focused family activities in our community.

Water for Life is a free public event that celebrates water in our environment. It is being held as part of this year’s Kentucky-Tennessee Water Professionals Conference, where 1,500 water professionals will gather in Lexington to learn about water issues affecting communities that they serve. To give back to the community, the Young Professionals Committee invites local families to an afternoon of fun water-based activities.

Water for Life will be held Sunday, July 17 at Jacobson Park, 4001 Athens Boonesboro Rd., near Shelter #1, from 1-4 p.m. With over 30 educational booths, games, canoe adventures, Next Round Brewing, a snow cone truck and the People’s Choice Water Tasting Contest, there’s something for everyone. It’s a fun way for people of all ages to celebrate water, our most precious resource, and learn about water conservation and water quality.

This event and conference was made possible by the host utilities, the Lexington Water Quality Division and Kentucky American Water, along with sponsors and exhibitors, presenters and the Volunteer Planning Committee. It’s a great team effort, and we are so grateful to everyone who plays a part in creating and bringing this conference and Water for Life to Lexington to fruition.
