landscape_1200x776

Each American household uses an average of 94,000 gallons of water per year. We often take this convenience for granted. It is in everyone's best interest to be aware of this precious resource in order to conserve and protect it from many risks.

The poster to the right can assist you in understanding how everyday occurrences can affect your drinking water. Risks to drinking water come in many forms, such as municipal and industrial discharges, recreational activities or simply natural conditions and events. These can all, in one way or another, be considered a risk to the safety of our drinking water.

The Protecting America's Public Health poster provides a detailed graphic description of these risks and the barriers in place to help ensure the safety of our drinking water.
