Do you know what is in your Drinking Water?

Today an article was published on the heels of the Flint, Michigan crisis, stating that Flint is not the only city that reported lead in their water over the last 10+ years. Some of the others were: Sebring, Ohio, Washington, D.C., Durham and Greenville, N.C., Columbia, S.C., Jackson, Miss. (just last month), and I’m sure many others unreported. You can read more in the article HERE.

In 2001, the NRDC (Natural Resources Defense Council) performed a survey of 19 cities of their water quality (and other concerns). If you view the images below, it is very disturbing. The infrastructure is only going to get worse, and not better, unless something is done about it. In the meantime, what do you do?

  1. If you have looked into filtration, you should make sure you have done the research to make sure the specific contaminants in your area are being removed by the system you choose.

  2. There is always atmospheric generators technology. With these solutions, you bypass city water entirely for your drinking water needs. Make water from air, and use them as a hybrid filtration system if needed.

  3. Speak to your government officials and local organizations and share your concern for the water you are drinking. EcoloBlue has solutions that can help entire communities out with millions of liters of water every day.

Take action and be part of the solution.
