Drink from the sink
Whether you’re young in age or young at heart, a refreshing drink of water from your tap never gets old. The secret is in the source: pure mountain snowmelt from the Sierra foothills is delivered straight to you.
Your tap water costs less than a penny per gallon. When was the last time you could buy bottled water for a penny? When you drink from the sink, you not only make best use of your precious money but you also create less waste. More than 80 percent of recyclable plastic bottles end up in landfills, and most bottled water tastes exactly like our tap water.
See ebmud.com/drinktap for more reasons to ditch bottled water and make the switch to fill your glass – or your reusable bottle –at the sink.
Need more proof that tap is tops? Despite all the challenges that the historic statewide drought presented, our water met or surpassed every state and federal standard for safe drinking water last year. The 2016 Annual Water Quality Report is now available. In it, you will read how our management and protection of watershed lands and reservoirs, and treatment and testing ensure your tap water is the highest quality, and oh so good.
