On September 15th, to raise awareness and educate our community about the value of water, AlexRenew participated in the national initiative, Imagine a Day Without Water. AlexRenew took part in several ways: on social media, through employee-submitted photos, and via a community YouTube Live event.

AlexRenew celebrates 60 years of transforming the community’s dirty water. That is 60 years of operating 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year to protect public health and ensure that our community’s streams, rivers, and bays improve for future generations. Let’s take a look back at the early days of AlexRenew, originally Alexandria Sanitation Authority.

The Commonwealth of Virginia and the City of Alexandria issued a proclamation declaring June 30 Drinking Water and Wastewater Professionals Appreciation Day.  I’m incredibly proud to work with dedicated professionals who provide a critical public service, no matter the day or hour. I hope next time you turn your faucet or send water down the drain, you’ll stop and think of the team of workers who make it possible.
