Toledo Water Crisis – Perfect Example of the Need to Make Water From Air

Every day there is another water crisis somewhere in the world, where people can not drink from their local water supply. Maybe you can bathe in it, maybe you can boil it, but you can’t drink it. Once again, people have to rely on running out to the grocery store, wait on local water donations, or go without.

Many people are still not aware that you can make your own water from air with EcoloBlue’s atmospheric water generators. Enough to drink, or enough for your whole house. Businesses can even have an ACE Container to create and bottle their own water, for their own employees, or to disperse in the case of a crisis. Why not become self reliant in a water crisis. Be proactive and not reactive. You don’t have to be put in crisis mode if you plan ahead.

Lake Erie, which is a source of drinking water for the Toledo water system, may have been impacted by a harmful algal bloom, according to the city. These blooms happen when there are excess levels of nitrogen and phosphorus in lakes and streams, which can come from runoff of over-fertilized fields and lawns, from malfunctioning septic systems and from livestock pens.

The elevated readings led the city to warn residents not to consume city water on Saturday. They were also cautioned not to boil water and then drinking it because that would only increase the concentration of the toxins. Tap water, they said, should also not be given to pets.

City officials said consuming water containing algal toxins may result in abnormal liver function, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, numbness or dizziness. Skin contact with contaminated water can cause irritation or rashes.
