BECKLEY, WV (WVNS)– The Beckley Sanitary Board is hosting an art contest.
The competition is open to all ages, and it’s encouraging people to envision what a day without running water would look like. This is all part of a national investment to bring attention to the need to access clean water infrastructure in a fun and creative way. Environmental Specialist Luke Stevens said access to water is something to not take for granted.
“We interact with water so many times in a day, without even thinking about it. When you’re brewing your coffee, taking a shower, etc.” Environmental Specialist Luke Stevens said. “The energy sector is using huge amounts of water, and it’s really a valuable resource that’s impacting each one of us.”
