City water sparkles on Earth Day
One city service that many of us take for granted daily is the provision of clean, safe drinking water. A sidebar note included along with a recent Time magazine print version story on the state of the economy notes that bottled water sales have recently dropped by about 10 percent. The electronic version of the story is here. As people cut back on spending, they are less willing to pay for what they can get for minimal cost—quality drinking water, provided by their city and delivered to their homes 24/7. Not only is city water good for your wallet, it's healthier than bottled (flouride is a good thing) and puts no plastic bottles in landfills.
