World Water Day is Monday, March 22, and the 2021 theme is “Valuing Water.” In honor of the theme, the City of Iowa City will highlight a different topic and “call to action” every Wednesday in March, and we invite the community to learn and celebrate with us! 

Here is the “Water Wednesday” lineup:
  • March 3: Use water wisely.
  • March 10: Appreciate water treatment and wastewater treatment plants.
  • March 17: Do not litter.
  • March 24: Be a wise consumer.
  • March 31: Celebrate water’s importance in our lives.

To learn about each “Water Wednesday” topic in depth, visit or stay tuned every Wednesday in March for updates shared at the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Facebook page.
