Long Island’s annual best water award is handed out to the community that offers the most refreshing and cleanest water from the faucet. It is a coveted honor, but this year’s recognition ceremony came with worry, as water quality is declining across the island, CBS New York reports.
While towns were awarded this year’s prize and honor, environmentalists could not help but point out the significant changes seen in the local water supplies.
“People shouldn’t confuse good taste with good quality of drinking water,” said Adrienne Esposito, Executive Director of the Citizens Campaign for the Environment, to the news source. “Many of these chemicals, like nitrogen, as well as low levels of toxic chemicals, cannot be tasted.”
Public buildings, businesses, school systems and homes are affected by water quality changes, so installing the appropriate equipment to minimize the effects may be helpful. The water experts at Quench can assist business owners and school officials in making sure their employees and students get the proper amounts of water each day, without fearing it is contaminated. Quench offers a wide array of bottleless water coolers that tap directly into a building’s main water supply, filter out bacteria and germs and regulate water temperature.
When it comes to combating the unfortunate changes seen in water quality, whether on a local or national scale, having the right equipment in place may help people get refreshing water day-in and day-out. Point-of-use water dispensers are innovative filtered water delivery systems that provide refreshing and great-tasting products in seconds. Instead of using jugs to hold the fluids, these machines sanitize drinking water at the push of a button.
