With almost 54,000 businesses, Anne Arundel County is a major hub of commerce and development. With a $35 billion economy, low taxes, a vast multi-modal transportation system, highly skilled workforce and excellent educational institutions, Anne Arundel County is the premier location to do business.
I am the first in a family of AACDPW guides working with you to keep Anne Arundel County a fantastic place to live, work and, of course, play. Assigned to the Bureau of Utility Operations, I am here to share some water wisdom. Let’s talk about our County’s award-winning water and how you can tap into a champion.
When it comes to the age-old debate of tap vs. bottled water, I crush the competition. Not only is my water healthier to drink, but I am more convenient, reliable and cost-effective. Whether it’s for drinking, bathing, cooking or cleaning, Splash is always there! Would you continue buying bottled soda if you had a fountain machine in your home? Of course not!
So, with the best of the best coming out of your pipes, we want to make sure all of our residents treat this award-winning water like the champion it is. Check out the video below to learn how you can help maintain our title while saving yourself money.
In addition, fixing easily corrected household water leaks could save you roughly 10 percent of your water bill cost! Follow these simple steps to test for a toilet leak:
Remove lid from tank
Place 15-20 drops of colored liquid -- such as coffee, tea or food coloring -- into the tank
Let sit for 20 minutes without flushing
Check the bowl -- if color has seeped in, you have a leak
Turn off the valve at the base of the toilet until the leak gets repaired
You may be wondering how I became the champ! Well, let Splash break it down for you. With your help, AACDPW maintains award-winning water by:
Producing clean drinking water in 10 Water Treatment Plants with a state-of-the-art, multi-step water treatment process
Treating wastewater in 6 Enhanced Nutrient Removal Water Reclamation facilities
Maintaining a 1,400-mile water distribution system to safely deliver water
Performing thousands of water quality tests to ensure quality drinking water
Protecting our most valuable resource through water conservation awareness
We can maintain our championship water, together. Work with me and AACDPW’s Bureau of Utility Operations in making a difference. For more tips and tricks from your buddy, Splash, follow AACDPW on Facebook and Twitter.
