For more than 35 years, Drinking Water Week has provided a unique opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to join together to recognize the vital role water plays in our daily lives. Throughout the week, San Diego plumbers, Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air will celebrate water by recognizing the essential role drinking water plays in our daily lives, with special attention to water infrastructure, the economy, and residential water treatment. “There is nothing more essential to a community’s health and vitality than reliable access to safe drinking water,” said American Water Works Association Executive Director David LaFrance. “Drinking Water Week provides an excellent moment to focus for a moment on the importance of caring for our water supplies and systems.” Unfortunately, San Diego was recently ranked as having the 9th worst drinking water among U.S. cities. “With limited local drinking water supplies and a reliance on importing approximately 85 percent of its water, San Diego is extremely aware of the need for secure, local drinking water. The Water Purification Demonstration Project plays an important role in exploring advanced technology to augment San Diego’s water portfolio,” said San Diego Public Utilities Director Roger Bailey. The City of San Diego’s Water Purification Demonstration Project will commemorate Drinking Water Week 2012 by offering free open house tours of its Advanced Water Purification Facility in northern San Diego on Saturday, May 12. Back-to-back tours will be offered from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Registration for the open house tours closes on Wednesday, May 9. Register for a tour. Anderson Plumbing, Heating and Air also has a variety of water treatment options available to help you improve the quality of the drinking water in your home.
