August is National Water Quality Month–a month dedicated to making the most out of the fresh water that is available. Having clean water in Peoria is vital to individual health and the needs of our environment.
The city of Peoria’s Water Services Department employs dedicated, certified operations and engineering personnel who treat, test, and deliver safe water to Peoria water customers. Every drop of Peoria’s drinking water is treated using modern, state-of-the-art treatment technology. Hundreds of tests are performed each month to be certain that drinking water meets all federal, state, and local water quality standards.
What is the Purpose of National Water Quality Month?
National Water Quality Month is a time to reflect on life without clean water. Just try to imagine what life would be like without easy access to clean water. There would be no fountains to quench your thirst when you’re out on a hot day. No more pools, and no more lakes and rivers clean enough for recreational activities. No more hour long showers. No more drinking water straight from the tap, or even filtering it through your Brita. No more running water in your house, period. In short, our lives would be totally different, and not for the better.
National Water quality month reminds us to take a moment to consider how important these water sources are not just to humans, but also to the other inhabitants of these ecosystems— whether it be the fish that live in the waters or the plants and animals that rely on these lakes and rivers for water just like we do. By thinking about the little things that you do on a daily basis that could have a negative effect on water quality, you’ll be one step closer to making a difference.
There are easily thousands of factors that can have a negative impact on the quality of your local water sources ranging from industrial pollutants like metal particulate, oils, and other chemicals to the pesticides we use in our own backyards.
During Water Quality Month, it is important to recognize what life would be like without clean water. For more information, visit www.nationalwaterqualitymonth.org. To view the city of Peoria’s Water Quality Reports, visit www.peoriaaz.gov/waterreports.
