The Importance of Water

The Importance of Water

(Last Updated On: September 8, 2017)

In New England and across the country, we take the importance of water for granted. We rely on water flowing freely to our homes for drinking, bathing and cleaning. We expect clean and safe water to flow from the tap everyday.

The EWG empowers people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. They provide a rundown of contaminants found in local everyday drinking water.

The Importance of Water in Our Communities

Why does the importance of water matter?

Access to clean water improves our lives and the lives of our children. For example, through clean water, our communities improve in the following areas.

  • Health

Safe water means clean hands and healthy bodies. Clean water helps keep kids from getting sick.

  • Hunger

Clean water helps local farmers produce more food. As urban farming increases in popularity, crops need water to grow and produce more food.

  • Education

Healthier students mean more time in school and the opportunity to learn.

What is water treatment?

Water treatment improves quality by disinfecting and purifying untreated ground and surface water.

Why is water treatment needed?

Every community provides a public or private water treatment facility. These facilities make water potable (safe to drink) and palatable (pleasant to taste). Water facilities ensure every community has enough water to meet their needs.

Raw and untreated water requires purification. Typically, raw water is obtained from an underground aquifer. These sources are wells, lakes, rivers or reservoirs. The treatment facility pre-treats the water to remove debris. Next, the water is processed through a series of steps to remove microorganisms. Upon completion, the water flows into your community.

What if my water still needs purification?

Water is part of nature. If there are environmental concerns in your region, you may need additional filtering or purification. Additionally, if your home has hard water, then you may need a water quality solution.

Water filters provide additional purification to remove contaminants from your home water. Point-of-use filters are applied at the point of consumption (i.e., to faucets and sinks). Point-of-entry filters are applied to the entire home. These filters act as a comprehensive water purification system.
