Florida PSC Encourages "Getting to Know Your H2O" During Drinking Water Week 2013


TALLAHASSEE — The Florida Public Service Commission (PSC) is recognizing National Drinking Water Week 2013 with information to help you answer this year’s slogan, “what do you know about H2O?”

Throughout the week, May 5-11, the American Water Works Association (AWWA) and partners across the water community will highlight the essential role drinking water plays in our daily lives. This year’s celebration gives special attention to ways consumers can get to know their H2O.

“Drinking Water Week is an excellent time for the PSC to reflect on our role in preserving Florida’s water supply and ensuring that the water utilities we regulate provide their customers with safe, reliable drinking water,” said PSC Chairman Ronald A. Brisé.  “I look forward to using this opportunity to encourage consumers to learn how a safe and sustainable drinking water supply is maintained, thereby protecting our communities’ health and vitality.”

To commemorate Drinking Water Week 2013, the PSC is providing consumers with important tips about drinking water within our own homes, ideas about water conservation, and a short play for teachers and students to use in discussions about the importance of sustaining our drinking water.
