World Water Day is an annual United Nations Observance started in 1993 that celebrates
water and raises awareness of the 2 billion people currently living without access to safe
water. It is about taking action to tackle the global water crisis. In 2022, the theme is
“Groundwater – Making the Invisible Visible”. The City of Shreveport commemorated this

questions and learned about the importance of clean water.
