How do You Inform Your Community About the Quality of Their Local Drinking Water?
We have established a broad recognition of the importance of effective, strategic communications designed to help address or prevent environmental issues regarding the quality of water for your community.
There are a variety of ways to inform the public about environmental problems that affect water quality, and such communication has the potential to improve the environmental literacy of the public and to increase support for regulations that address these types of issues. Central to that effort is our commitment to work collaboratively with our clients, their respective dedicated utilities, and various stakeholders to elevate clean water, clean water services, and the infrastructure that supports it as essential to keeping their communities safe and thriving. We understand that varying degrees of resources and dedicated public information staff can make it difficult to engage with consumers and target audiences, so we are here to assist in your efforts to communicate about the value and importance of water.
We are currently working the Plainville Department of Public Works, the Westminster Department of Public Works, and several other Massachusetts communities to provide public outreach services. We are skilled at crafting Consumer Confidence/Water Quality Reports, Water Conservation educational outreach materials, MS4 permitting outreach plans and communications, as well as water crisis communications strategies. Our methods include:
Crafting inserts for water/wastewater bills.
Creating fact sheets, brochures, websites, and social media posts.
Drafting of public notices.
Arranging community workshops and community meetings.
Performing tactical social media outreach.
Pitching news stories to the media.
Drafting press releases.
Finding the right means to reach customers and deciding what to say may seem like a challenge, but ratepayers who understand and care about their drinking water supply are more likely to support the utility’s source water protection efforts.
At Capital Strategic Solutions, we provide our clients with the support to develop strategic communications helping address or prevent environmental issues regarding the quality of water. If you are interested in these types of services and/or learning more about what we do, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or call 508-690-0046.
