What’s The Quality Of Your Water?
Each year, the city of Odessa releases a water quality report for review by citizens using city water. The results may be astounding! National wants you to know the quality of your water and what you can do to improve it.
Who Requires Water Quality Reports?
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is the agency behind water quality reports. Contaminants will infiltrate ground water. While the human body can process them in small amounts, certain cautions may apply for those who are immune compromised. Therefore, the EPA sets out guidelines for acceptable levels of contaminants in ground water supply.
Where Can I Find A Copy?
The City of Odessa publishes water reports on its website annually, located here. You will also usually be notified of the publish date via mail at your home or business.
Wait…Is It Safe?
If a city’s water supply doesn’t meet the safety standards set out by the EPA, they are required to notify citizens to stop using the water for drinking purposes immediately. There will be some level of contaminants in any water supply system, but a healthy person (with no immunity issues) should be able to process small amounts with no adverse health reactions.
How Can I Protect Myself?
National offers reverse osmosis system installations in order to protect your family and ensure the cleanest drinking water possible. A reverse osmosis system pushes tap water through a thin, tight membrane one drop at a time into a pressurized tank. The membrane filters out dirt and other contaminants to create fresher, cleaner, better tasting water.
What Does This Mean For Me?
Not only are you able to eliminate health risks by having cleaner drinking water, you can actually save money! The average American spends $7.50 per gallon on bottled water as opposed to $1.22 per gallon for using tap water. Factoring in cost of filters for a reverse osmosis system would only add an inconsequential amount to the cost of tap water. It’s a great way to save money!
