Florida PSC Imagines a Day Without Water


TALLAHASSEE — Can you imagine a day without water?  The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) did just that for the annual “Imagine a Day Without Water,” a national Value of Water Campaign on October 21.


PSC Commissioners and Executive Director participated in a “Water Walk” video with each imagining how a day without water would affect a typical neighborhood. The PSC offices are located in Tallahassee’s Southwood neighborhood, a perfect backdrop to imagine a day without water.


“On our ‘Water Walk,’ we thought about how often most people take their water and wastewater systems for granted,” said PSC Chairman Gary Clark.  “We hope our video highlights how water is essential and how important Florida’s water and wastewater utilities are in delivering this most vital resource to consumers and businesses.”


Video highlights include:


• Commissioner Julie Brown filmed the video’s opening and closing segments in front of the PSC’s headquarters located down the street from the main Southwood entrance.


• Commissioner Donald Polmann at Southwood’s medical center imagining how health services would be interrupted without water.


• Chairman Gary Clark at a Southwood apartment complex imagining what it would be like for the 7,000+ homes—and residents—to have no water and no working fire hydrants.


• Executive Director Braulio Baez at Southwood’s Florida State University School imagining how education and athletics would be impacted with no water.
