Concord Water vs. Bottled Water

Concord’s tap water is highly regulated by the Environmental Protection Agency. The town tests its water system continually. Problems detected must be communicated to citizens ASAP. Concord’s Water Department publishes an annual Water Quality Report, posts it online and mails it to all households in Concord.

The fact that the FDA had just an equivalent of 2.5 workers assigned to testing the 9 billion gallons and the 50 billion bottles sold in the US in 2008 indicates a low priority to testing bottled water.

Bottled water costs $1.00 a pint. For that price, you can have 1,500 large glasses of Concord tap water which costs .0007 cents a pint. When you put this next to the fact that it costs US cities and states at least $42 million a year to dispose of plastic water bottles, then you have to agree that Concord’s tap water is the better option. Discarded and recycled bottled water plastic adds 45 tons annually to Concord’s waste stream, and we have to clean up the rest from our conservation lands.

Another key reason besides cost and assurance of safety to go for Concord’s tap water is that, every year, the bottled water industry produces as much carbon dioxide as 2 million cars, contributing to global warming, which is now recognized as a serious threat to humanity by the world scientific community.

Also, Less than 25% of plastic water bottles are recycled. Each year, nearly 1 million tons of bottled water containers end up in landfills or as litter. Many bottles end up in the oceans, adding to a massive buildup of plastic waste that kills birds, fish, and other animals.

This is a very good idea to

This is a very good idea to purify all the water going over and reporting the citizens anually, with the quality report is a good initiative thing to plan so. Maybe a few other board would probably replicate the same idea for their good cause. As I'm awarded for best essay writer online, I'm looking to write an essay over the similar topic which includes the water purification. Thanks for the share.
