Drinking Water

Are You Aware Of What’s In Your Drinking Water?

Access to clean drinking water is essential for any community to survive and flourish. In fact, it was this need that compelled the Romans to build a series of aqueducts in 14 different countries, with their longest aqueduct spanning 250 kilometers! Now, just because water can get from one place to another doesn’t necessarily mean it’s “pure”. Much like the Romans, we pipe our cities supplies of fresh water from lands near and far, and thanks to modern technology it’s filtered and delivered straight to the tap in your home. Curious to see what might be actually coming out of the tap? Check out this info-graphic from Pelican Water:
