Roswell festival to celebrate safe drinking water

One of the more offbeat events of the spring festival season, a “Drinking Water Festival” will be offered by Roswell to give the public “an opportunity to explore the process for safe drinking water,” as well as kick off National Safe Drinking Water Week.

The event, sponsored by the city’s Water Utility Division, is set for 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Roswell Water Treatment Plat, 100 Dobbs Drive. Guests will be able to tour the water plant and learn about the source of drinking water and how it is treated, according to a city announcement.

There also will be the standard festival fare of a free cookout and children’s activities and giveaways, as well as lessons on water conservation and the chance to sign up for AquaHawk, a free online web portal that lets Roswell residents monitor their water usage.

National Safe Drinking Water Week is May 5-11. Information: Vicki Culbreth at 770-641-3742 or or
