This week is National Drinking Water Week– a time to highlight the importance of a safe, reliable drinking water supply to our overall quality of life – from public health protection and fire suppression to the critical role it plays in supporting the economy.
It’s easy to take our drinking water for granted, but every day around the world, thousands of people die from lack of access to clean water. Maine has abundant and safe sources of drinking water and we all work hard to keep it this way.
