Respondents answered similarly to the previous year's survey but expressed a little more optimism about the present and future state of the sector. The survey was conducted before the 2020 coronavirus pandemic, and it is uncertain whether perceptions of the water industry will change or be reinforced.

The “why” of drinking water system operation (context) must precede the “what” and “how” (content) in design. The expertise of drinking water professionals is only as effective as the awareness they bring to the design of the end‐user experience.

Unless utility staff or city officials take the first steps to communicate with concerned customers about water quality, messages can be quickly misconstrued. In Michigan, the City of Ann Arbor developed a branding and communication strategy to ensure that residents were armed with knowledge about the water utility's decisions and actions.

Research reports published in 1999 and 2016 demonstrate that water‐efficient fixtures—primarily toilets and clothes washers—led to significant savings in residential water use. The 1993 Energy Policy Act and the voluntary WaterSense program, which provide guidelines for residential plumbing fixtures, have been successful in helping US residents conserve water. William B.
