We would like to let everyone know that we have reached our required chlorination levels in our water storage tanks and throughout our system. We have taken much time and effort with our newly installed equipment to make the necessary adjustments to reach this point. We have been testing the water for proper chlorine residual levels in our storage tanks every day including weekends and holidays. We have made sure to address all concerns received by testing and or flushing where needed to reach this milestone. You should all be noticing that the water has greatly improved. If any of you are still experiencing any issues at all please contact us and we will be glad to come out to test the levels at or near your home to see if any flushing is needed to correct any issues that might be cause for concern. We appreciate your comments, patience and understanding and any of your input will be used to improve our future flushing processes.

Did you know?
o A small drip from a faucet can waste as much as 34 gallons of water a day.
o The Amazon River holds about 20% of the world’s freshwater.
o Water covers about 71% of the earth’s surface, but only 2.5% is freshwater.
o 80% of illness in the developing world is water-related.
o Drinking water is delivered via one million miles of pipes across the United States, but many of those pipes are leaky.
o The USA uses about 74% as much freshwater as China each year, even though we only have 23% of its population.
o Bottled water oftentimes contains more impurities than tap water.
o Staying hydrated can actually help prevent cancer.
o Nearly 1.8 billion people in seventeen countries are heading towards a water crisis in the next few years.
o More than half of the water used in a home is used in the bathroom.
The good news is that freshwater scarcity is one of those problems that everyone can help with a little bit to get to a solution through small actions, like fixing water leaks in your own house and business, installing low flow toilets, and making sure your trash makes it into the proper receptacles so that rainfall runoff doesn’t carry it into local freshwater creeks and rivers. There is no need to change your whole life, but you can help out by make a few small changes that have a big impact on our planet.
So make sure that you enjoy 3 or more glasses of water a day and be grateful for just how lucky you are to have such ease of access to your clean drinking water.
