The selected hydrants form a 2-mile route when walked in a specific order. Follow this course and you have taken what we call the H2.0 Water Walk. As you travel, take a moment to think about how essential water is to everything we do. We depend on water to grow our food, keep businesses open, clean our homes, and put out fires.
Feeling energetic? Walk the route twice! In doing so, you have covered 4-miles. This is the average distance people in developing countries walk every day to gather their water for daily use.
