Clean Water Initiatives and Faucet Mount Systems

President Obama is nearly one hundred days into his role as commander and chief. He has put together a number of environmental milestones, including increasing the budget for clean water.

From The Daily Green:

$6 Billion for Water Quality, Wastewater and Drinking Water Infrastructure:
On the list of least-sexy, most-important public investments, sewers
ranks at the top of the list. The Clean Water Act, in the 1970s, vastly
improved water quality through a huge infusion of federal money in
public works projects to create sewers, drinking water treatment plants
and related infrastructure. Since then, not even a simple revolving
loan program has remained unscathed… until now. Anyone who has
followed this issue — and many have followed it all too closely in a
sewage-filled basement — knows that these are true shovel-ready
projects that have been long waiting investment. 

For homeowners, ensuring your family enjoys clean water every time they go to the faucet is as simple as investing in a clean water filter.

Clean Water Celebration in Illinois

It seems that with all the challenges we face in providing the world with clean water, it is sometimes easy to overlook the fact that here in America we are largely fortunate in that we enjoy a steady supply of clean water.

In Peoria, Illinois, the Clean Water Celebration takes a moment to reflect and give thanks.

From an article in the PJStar.com

The Clean Water Celebration is a joint effort between the Sun
Foundation, an arts and science education group in the Tri-County Area,
and the Rivers Project, a high school program coordinated by Southern
Illinois University at Edwardsville. Its goal is to educate the
community and students about the importance of water conservation and
preservation both locally and globally.

Ways to Promote Clean Water — Statistics, Water Distillers and Bottles

Most people understand that clean water is essential to human health. But sometimes we need a reminder. For those of us concerned with the cleanliness of our water, there are certain measures we can take to limit the waste we produce, like using environmentally sound water bottles, as well as ensure that we have clean water in our homes every day.

Waterwise 9000 Water Distiller

From the Guardian:

More than one billion people in the developing world have no safe
drinking water, or water for washing their food, hands and utensils
before eating. 2.4 billion also have no adequate sanitation. This leads
to:

•water-borne diseases (e.g. cholera, typhoid)
•water-related diseases (e.g. malaria, yellow fever, river blindness, sleeping sickness)
•water-based diseases (e.g. guinea worm and bilharzias)
•water-scarce diseases (trachoma and scabies)
•diarrhoea – a leading killer of children in sub-Saharan Africa
The
crisis is worst in sub-Saharan Africa, where 2 in 5 people lack safe
water. A baby here is almost 520 times more likely to die from
diarrhoea than one born in Europe.

Improving access to clean
water and sanitation would dramatically reduce illness and death in
poor countries: a clean water supply reduces diarrhoea-related death by
up to 25%, while improved sanitation reduces it by 32%.

Watch “Poisoned Water” on PBS on April 21st

On April 21, 2009, PBS will be airing "Poisoned Waters" on Frontline. Frontline will examine the newest health hazards in our nation's contaminated waterways. To get more information on this program, visit www.pbs.org/frontline/poisonedwaters.
