LISLE, Ill. — As National Drinking Water Week opens, consumers can look for personalized water treatment options to ensure they are protecting their families, according to a press release.

National Drinking Water Week this year is May 5-11.

“This is a time when we can think about how to make our water as clean and as safe as possible,” said Dave Haataja, executive director of the Water Quality Association (WQA).

WQA offers performance-based certifications under its Gold Seal program. The Gold Seal is designed to help consumers choose products that are effective.

“As awareness increases, consumers are looking for more and more ways to protect themselves and their families,” added Haataja.

An independent consumer survey released earlier this spring showed Americans feel more concern about their water, noted the release.

A quarter of consumers surveyed said they are “extremely concerned” about the quality of their water supply. Increasing numbers of Americans also say their primary concern over their water quality is related to contaminants.
