Houston Public Works 2024 Water Works Festival
Essential. Reliable. Invaluable. Water— it is the thread that weaves together our daily lives. It keeps our community healthy, city running and economy growing. While essential, water infrastructure is largely invisible. Few people realize what it takes to treat and deliver drinking water every day or how wastewater is cleaned so that it can be safely returned to the environment.
The high quality of life we enjoy in Houston would not be possible without water and the infrastructure that fuels it.
Each year, Houston Public Works hosts the Water Works Festival to engage and educate the public about the value of water. Emphasis is on topics such as water conservation, the water cycle, local water systems, species habitats, weather, water quality and ecology. Additionally, attendees have the opportunity to learn about the City’s water supply, water purification plants, wastewater treatment systems, conservation efforts, drought plan, stormwater projects and more.
In 2023, Earth Day featuring the Water Works Festival attracted more than 43,000 attendees to Discovery Green. The festival offers a rare opportunity to engage with Houstonians about topics important to our community and your organization.
