Share AWBD’s PSA videos with your MUD district!

We are thrilled to present the “Stormwater Drains Aren’t Trash Dumpsters” PSA and “How Are My Taxes Calculated?” PSA videos!

These engaging videos are a fantastic way for districts to deliver crucial knowledge to residents within their communities, covering topics they might not yet be familiar with. By posting these PSAs on your MUD district websites, you can inspire and educate not only your residents but also a wider audience in the water industry. These videos are completely free for use and sharing.
