USEPA Wants to Bring Back Water Fountains

fountainThe USEPA is making an effort to bring back something that was previously found in nearly every public space in the country - water fountains. The agency is working with the U.S. Conference of Mayors to bolster the nation's supply of public drinking fountains in parks, playgrounds, city streets, and town centers.

The USEPA says water fountains provide a wide variety of public benefits, including access to clean drinking water and an alternative to sodas and other high-sugar drinks, while providing an opportunity to educate the public about the importance of safe and affordable public drinking water systems.

The United States has some of the highest quality tap water in the world that is available for a very low cost to consumers. Many mayors and cities have already publicly committed to investing in their communities by restoring public drinking fountains to publicize the benefits of drinking safe, affordable tap water. You can read more about how your community can get involved in this movement by accessing the USEPA website, by clicking here.
