WISCONSIN’S QUALITY DRINKING WATER CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION DURING NATIONAL DRINKING WATER WEEK

Wisconsin communities enjoy safe drinking water and continue to make steady progress in improving drinking water quality, offering cause for celebration during National Drinking Water Week. More than 95 percent of the state’s public water systems meet all health-based standards and during the three year period from 2011 to 2013, municipal community water systems invested a total of $134.9 million in upgrades through the Safe Drinking Water Loan Program, a fund administered by the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. “Clean water plays a fundamental role in human health and remains essential to a strong economy,” said DNR Secretary Cathy Stepp. “In Wisconsin, we’re fortunate to have abundant groundwater supplies and the continued reinvestment in municipal water systems ensures this water is delivered safely to the public from the tap.” http://dnr.wi.gov/news/Weekly/?id=482#art7
