GOOD TO THE LAST DROP.

The United States Army Reserve is proud to celebrate Fix-A-Leak Week on March 19 through 25 and World Water Day on March 22!

Fix-A-Leak Week is an observance of the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s WaterSense Program. The event encourages water conservation through leak detection. In the Army Reserve, we use Fix-A-Leak Week as an opportunity to encourage Soldiers, Civilians and Families – in their roles both as facility occupants and as homeowners – to conserve water and support the holistic integration of sustainability initiatives across the enterprise and in their daily “battle rhythms.” Our communities are important partners in our efforts to enhance our mission resilience and bolster our water security for generations to come.

World Water Day is an observance of the United Nations. This year, the theme is “The Answer Is In Nature,” celebrating natural or “green” water infrastructure systems such as wetlands, forests, coral reefs and other ecosystems that treat, manage and deliver water at its source, according to Mother Nature’s ‘best management practices.’ For World Water Day 2018, the Army Reserve will focus on its efforts to support green infrastructure and incorporate its principles into the sustainable design and development of its facilities.
