Understanding your water from source to tap during Drinking Water Week

posted on

As Drinking Water Week continues, we are encouraging everyone to learn and understand their water supply from source to tap. What does that mean?

Every day, millions of people in North America turn on their faucets but give little thought to the water that flows out. How does water get from its initial source, through the treatment process and then out of the faucet? Also, who are the professionals that are responsible for treating and distributing drinking water? What federal organizations regulate and set the laws to protect our drinking water supply? Discovering the answers to these important questions is a valuable part in understanding our drinking water.

The best way to find out more about drinking water is by contacting your local utility. Information can also be found on Drinktap's water information webpage.
