ST. LOUIS, Mo. _There are 700 water main breaks nationwide every day. That`s one every two minutes. The average age of our pipes is nearly a half century, or even older in urban areas like New York, Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia.
The St. Louis area sees plenty of water main breaks as well.
Today is Imagine A Day Without Water, a time to reflect if we had no water for farmers, doctors to wash their hands or even to make a cup of coffee.
Radhika, CEO of the US Water Alliance and Director of the 'Value of Water' campaign, explains.
