BRAMPTON, ON. (May 7, 2012) Ė Did you know that Peel’s water goes through rigorous treatment and testing to ensure that each drop poured from your taps is safe and clean?
Drinking Water Week takes place from May 6 to 12 and is a great time for residents to rethink their preferred beverage choices, and consider drinking a tall glass of tap water.
“There is nothing more essential to our community’s health and well-being than reliable access to safe drinking water,” says Mark Schiller, Director, Water Division. “Drinking Water Week is a great time for Peel residents to recognize how fortunate we are to have access to excellent quality tap water and to make it part of our daily choices.”
Peel’s tap water is:
- Safe. Water is treated before reaching your tap and the Region’s water treatment facilities use the most advanced technology available. Once treated, drinking water is continuously tested throughout Peel to ensure the quality of Peel water always meets the standards set out in the Safe Drinking Water Act.
- Convenient. All you need is a reusable container to enjoy Peel’s water wherever you go. With so many new styles and accessories available, it’s easy to find a reusable container that will suit your lifestyle. Before heading out, simply refill a bottle from your tap. Check in with bluew.org to find convenient refilling locations.
- Inexpensive. Drinking tap water costs much less than purchasing bottled beverages. For just a penny, a reusable bottle can be filled 45 times!
Celebrate Drinking Water Week by pouring a refreshing glass of Peel’s tap water. It’s the safe, healthy choice for you and your family at home, work, school, or while on the go.
