What do you know about H2O?

This week May 5th through 11th is Drinking Water Week sponsored by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and the U.S. Environmental Protection (EPA) to recognize the importance of tap water. The theme this year is “What do you know about H2O?” which encourages people to get to know their water supply.  Clean tap water is critical to the success of a healthy community. Our health, industry, agriculture and recreation all rely on a clean supply of drinking water. 

The Watershed Committee of the Ozarks is dedicated to protecting our drinking water supply every week of the year through education and best management practices in our watershed.  Drinking water week is a perfect time to celebrate the quality of water we have in here in the Ozarks and also highlight the diligent work that goes into protection, treatment and transport of that clean water to your tap every day!   Water infrastructure is an important piece of how clean water is delivered to your home.  Not as visible as the transportation infrastructure we drive our cars on everyday however it is no less important.  Reinvesting in that water infrastructure is essential for the health of our community.

 So “What do you know about H2O?”  Drinking water week trivia question of the day, approximately how many residential miles of water distribution lines do we have in Springfield, MO?  (answer to be revealed in follow up blog post)
