Conservation Tips from SWD16

Drinking Water Week

For more than 40 years, the American Water Works Association and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week.


Each year during the first full week of May, we recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives.


This year's theme, "Protect the Source," is a reminder that our precious drinking water needs to be protected from pollution and contaminants of all kinds.


Join us in Protecting the Source!





Drinking Water Week Art Contest!

Drinking Water Week


Drinking water in Silverdale comes from rain that seeps through the ground into natural underground aquifers.


K-12 students in Kitsap County are invited to show
how they "Protect the Source" of our drinking water.


Create an original FLAT 8-1/2" by 11" (letter-sized) artwork (drawing, painting, etc.) depicting the theme. Submissions demonstrating creativity and best expression of theme will be chosen by our Commissioners and made into a poster to be presented to each of the selected artists.


This poster will be displayed in our office for all our visitors to enjoy.  Selected artwork will be presented in upcoming customer newsletters, as well as other media. Selected artwork may also be submitted to the 2018 American Water Works Association art contest.


Artwork and completed entry form (required) are due no later than 4:30 p.m., Friday, March 30, 2018.  Artwork and completed entry form may be hand-delivered or mailed (flat) to Silverdale Water District.

Efficient water use can save you money on water & utility bills.

Use the proper water level, load size selection and water temperature when washing clothes.

Reduce the water level per flush by installing a low-flow toilet or a toilet displacement device.

In-sink garbage disposal devices use roughly 11.5 gallons of water each day. Try composting organic wastes instead of throwing them away.

Use both sides of the sink when washing dishes by hand: one side to wash and the other side to rinse. Do not wash dishes under a running faucet.
