During Drinking Water Week 2010, Water Suppliers Invite Public to 'Get To Know Your Water'
Date:5/5/2010

During Drinking Water Week 2010, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and water providers across North America are urging consumers to “get to know your water.”

Denver, CO (Vocus) May 5, 2010 -- During Drinking Water Week 2010, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and water providers across North America are urging consumers to “get to know your water.”

“It’s easier than ever before to learn about the source, treatment and quality of the water that comes from your tap,” said AWWA President Craig R. Woolard. “The more we know about our water and water systems, the more able we are to make decisions that protect our water supplies and our health.”

In the United States, community water systems are required to send water quality reports to customers by July 1 of each year. The reports, which provide results of testing on approximately 90 contaminants and point out any violations of Safe Drinking Water Act standards, are often also posted online.

Water quality reports also carry information on the source and treatment of a community’s tap water. More than 92 percent of public water systems in the United States had no violations of the Safe Drinking Water Act standards during the past year.

While customers of community water systems have their water tested every day and professionally treated for drinking, owners of private wells should take special steps to assure the safety of their water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency advises private well users to be aware of potential pollution threats and to have their water tested periodically by a certified laboratory.
