Drinking Water Week 2017- To Know It Is To Love It

It’s Drinking Water Week!  Clackamas River Water joins the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and water professionals across the country in highlighting the importance of understanding their water supply from source to tap.

Water – You rely on it daily, but what do you really know about it? There is so much more to H₂O than you realize! Did you know that tap water provides us with…
* A low-cost way to stay hydrated
* Public health and fire protection
* Nearly every product that we use every day?
The more you know about your H₂O, the more there is to love! 

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 checking out our Drinking Water Page. More information on water can also be found on Drinktap.org.
