Issue: Water Quality

Fresh water is a limited resource, and preserving its quality is important for our drinking water supply, food production, and recreation. In a time of declining public agency resources and increasing complexity of environmental and public health problems, protecting water quality can be a challenge. In recent years we have seen an increase in occurrence, intensity, and duration of harmful algal blooms as well as high-profile cases of drinking water contaminated with heavy metals, pharmaceuticals, bacteria, and other substances. These and other problems are compounded by population growth, climate extremes, and a variety of ever-evolving factors. Whether you are concerned with protecting the quality of surface waters or the safety of your drinking water, 4Waters can help.
