Trust in Tap
Did you know that the water that flows straight to your tap is safe, environmentally-friendly and cheaper than bottled water?
The Santa Ana Watershed Project Authority (SAWPA) and its water-wise regional partners deliver high-quality and safe water to you 24/7 for all your daily uses. From gulping down an ice-cold cup of tap water after a workout to quenching the thirst of your household plants, tap water plays a crucial role in our daily lives.
Take a peek at the benefits of tap water in our new video, and celebrate the fact that you can always ‘Trust in Tap!’
As a regional leader in water, SAWPA thinks outside the bottle to preserve our watershed through strategic planning, regional partnerships, conservation programs and educational opportunities in the region.
Explore these reasons why your tap water is trusted, reliable and safe:
Trust in tap safety
Your tap water undergoes stringent testing and regulations. Your local water agencies and authorities are guided by, and comply with, the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act. These two Environmental Protection Agency guidelines position public health and environmental safety as top priorities.
Trust in tap sustainability
Tap into your sustainable side and drink with a clear conscience. When thinking tap or bottle, we know which is better for the environment. Be a part of the change to stop the use of single-use plastic bottles which pollute our planet. When you rely on tap water instead of bottled water to quench your thirst, you have the opportunity to fill up a reusable water bottle, which will save hundreds of plastic bottles from becoming pollution.
Trust in tap costs
You also save money when choosing tap water. When you drink from your tap and pay your water bill, you are investing in your local water resources and projects instead of adding profits to a private water bottling company. Our SoCal tap water is sourced through a combination of local groundwater and imported water. This process is more locally sustainable in the face of emergencies and less costly than purchasing water from far away. Additionally, our water delivery infrastructure allows for tap water to flow directly into your home or business.
With so many reasons to trust in tap, we hope you will join us in thinking outside the bottle! To learn more about the safety of your water, visit our water safety page.
