[ARCHIVED] What's Your Water Wish?

Water Wish Drop Template

What are your wishes and thoughts for our waterways and the Chesapeake Bay? Your "wish" may be for less pollution or litter; it may be for better habitat or perhaps you'd like to express your appreciation and love for the water... All those thoughts reflect how important the water is to all of us. Hampton Waterways Restoration Project would like to give your thoughts a voice by sharing them with the rest of our community and with our elected officials. We plan to show the progress of our "water drop" thoughts to Mayor Tuck and the rest of City Council at the Hampton City Council meeting, Wednesday, October 12, 1016. We will attach your water drop wishes to a rope, and we hope it ends up being a long one! Who knows, if we get enough water drops, maybe we can one day stretch it across the Hampton River?! (Stay tuned!!!)

To help get you started, we have attached a "water drop" template. Write your wish or thought on it. Then please print the water drop template on 8.5" x 11" card stock paper (any color); cut out the drop and write/decorate your Water Wish (the pointed end is the top of the drop).

The Water Wish may be dropped off at Hampton Clean City Commission (HCCC) 1296 Thomas Street, Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. For larger groups, we can come and pick up the drops. Please call 727-1130 to arrange for pick up.

Water drops may also be decorated, scanned, and sent electronically to - please put "Water Wish" in the subject line. We will then print and cut your drop to add to the collection!

We hope you'll join us in this effort! We also hope you'll help us spread the word, so we can see just how far our thoughts can spread out on that rope!
