The mission of HR WET is to develop and implement a regional approach to promoting efficient water use throughout Hampton Roads. The HR WET program has established the following goals:
* Raise public awareness of the region's water supplies and the need to use them efficiently with the objective of changing habits, not lifestyles, regarding water use.
* Reduce per capita water consumption by increasing the number of people using water more wisely.
To achieve these goals, HR WET conducts a comprehensive educational program involving media relations, advertising, demonstrations at festivals and exhibits, and public speaking for civic groups. Other programs include a video, brochures, research on the effectiveness of water-saving kits, a clearinghouse for exchanging information on water-wise practices, and a program that recognizes water-efficient businesses and industries.
Wise water use is becoming a way of life for Hampton Roads' citizens. The region's localities are responding to this situation in the truest spirit of cooperation, reflecting the common bonds that run throughout Hampton Roads.
