Fascinating Facts About Water - courtesy of the American Water Works Association...
- Studies show that bottled water is no more pure than tap water, yet bottled water
costs about 1,900% more. An 8-ounce glass of water can be refilled approximately
15,000 times for the same price as a 6-pack of soda.
- Your water bill pays for more than simply water. You get sophisticated water
treatment, frequent testing and monitoring, and a vast underground
infrastructure that delivers safe, plentiful water right to your tap.
- Above ground storage tanks ensure that water pressure is fairly constant and
water volumes are sufficient to fight fires, even if the electricity that runs the
water pumps is off.
