Image result for 2020 census

Starting in 1790, and every 10 years since, the federal government conducts a population count of everyone in the United States.  Responding to the census affects the amount of funding Winfield receives, your representation in government, and planning for our community.

 Beginning in mid-March, people will receive a notice in the mail to complete the 2020 Census.  Once you receive it, you can respond online, by phone, or by mail.  In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with households that haven’t responded to the census.

When completing the census, you should count everyone who is living in your household on April 1, 2020.  Your answers are confidential.  You can learn more about the 2020 Census by visiting 2020census.gov

Imagine a Day without Water

Imagine a Day without Water

Could you go a day without water? No water to drink or make coffee? No water to shower, brush your teeth, flush the toilet, or do laundry? No water for firefighters to put out fires. No water for farmers to water their crops. 

We know that water is essential.  That’s why we want you to know about a nationwide educational effort called “Imagine a Day Without Water.” On October 21, the Value of Water Coalition is coordinating a national advocacy and educational event, Imagine a Day Without Waterto raise awareness about the most essential natural resource we have: Water.  Across the country, water agencies, mayors, engineers, contractors, business leaders, community members, schools, organizations, corporations, environmental advocates, and more are joining together to educate people about how water is essential, the challenges facing water and wastewater systems, and the need for investment.

Even though water is absolutely vital to everything we do, it too often is forgotten. Out of sight, out of mind. Many people take water service for granted. Clean, safe, reliable, and affordable water comes out of the tap and flows down the drain without a second thought. But the massive infrastructure — much of it underground — which brings water to homes and businesses, takes it away, and treats it, is aging. A water main breaks somewhere in the U.S. every two minutes. Most pipes have an average life expectancy of 50 years, but in many major cities, water pipes are more than 100 years old. Communities cannot afford to go a day without water if those systems reach their breaking points.
