Kaua‘i County Water Department goes pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month
Kaua‘i County Department of Water employees gathered with members of the Kaua‘i Committee on the Status of Women on Sept. 29 for a brief presentation, announcing that Water Department employees will wear pink work shirts featuring a pink remembrance ribbon on Wednesdays throughout October in observance of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
“We come together as a department to support awareness efforts in our communities and to honor co-workers and families and friends who have been impacted by breast cancer,” said Water Department Manager and Chief Engineer Joe Tait. “Water is essential to medical centers, businesses and research facilities that help to continue research for this disease. We will continue to work towards water system resiliency to ensure that our customers — medical, residential and businesses — have access to water service when they need it.”
