HJ 134 IH 101st CONGRESS 1st Session H. J. RES. 134 To designate the period commencing on May 1, 1989, and ending on May 7, 1989, as `National Drinking Water Week'. IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES February 7, 1989 Mr. ROE introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on Post Office and Civil Service JOINT RESOLUTION To designate the period commencing on May 1, 1989, and ending on May 7, 1989, as `National Drinking Water Week'. Whereas water itself is God-given, and the drinking water that flows dependably through our household taps results from the dedication of the men and women who operate the public water systems of collection, storage, treatment, testing, and distribution that insures that drinking water is available, affordable, and of unquestionable quality; Whereas the advances in health effects research and water analysis and treatment technologies, in conjunction with the Safe Drinking Water Act Amendments of 1986 (Public Law 99-339), could create major changes in the production and distribution of drinking water. Whereas this substance, which the public uses with confidence in so many productive ways, is without doubt the single most important product in the world and a significant issue of the future; Whereas the public expects high quality drinking water to always be there when needed; and Whereas the public continues to increase its demand for drinking water of unquestionable quality: Now, therefore, be it Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That the period commencing on May 1, 1989, and ending on May 7, 1989, is designated as `National Drinking Water Week', and the President is authorized and requested to issue a proclamation calling upon the people of the United States to observe such period with appropriate ceremonies, activities, and programs designed to enhance public awareness of drinking water issues and public recognition of the difference that drinking water makes to the health, safety, and quality of the life we enjoy.
