Spreading The Word About Tap Water Quality
Tap water. You turn on the faucet, it's always there. It may be taken for granted, but tap water quality, convenience and value is not taken lightly by the people who ensure it is safe and available when you want it.
The safety, convenience and affordability of tap water is the message being communicated by "Tap Into Quality", a public education campaign designed to keep citizens informed about the quality of their tap water.
Valley cities, Central Arizona Project (CAP) and Salt River Project (SRP) have teamed with the AZ Water Association (formerly known as the Arizona Water & Pollution Control Association) to educate citizens about their tap water.
Up to 100 tests a day are performed on the drinking water you receive at your home or business. These tests are repeated daily to make sure your water meets every health and safety standard set by the state and federal government.
And in terms of value, you can fill more than five one-gallon jugs with water from your tap for just one penny.
As with many other drinks, your tap water may taste better if chilled, so fill a pitcher with water and stick it in your refrigerator…or add a thin slice of lemon or lime for a different taste.
People may have other preferences regarding drinking water. That's all right. We just want to make sure they are making an informed decision.
