Back to The Truth About Pharmaceuticals and Personal Care Products in Your Water
Trace amounts of endocrine-disrupting chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and personal care products (PPCPs) have been detected in many drinking water supplies. Written by former AWWA Executive Director Jack Hoffbuhr, this easy-to-read booklet will help consumers understand what these chemicals are, how they get into the water supply, in what amounts they have been detected, human and wildlife health and safety concerns, and what water utilities and consumers can do about them.
Safe drinking water is critical to all of us. The more we understand, the more we can do to keep our water safe. Consumers want facts and straight talk about something as important as water – not hype, half-truths, or sensationalistic news stories. It is up to you, the water supplier, to be proactive and provide the ;scientific facts to consumers. Offer your customers this informative booklet (excellent for water utility personnel, as well).
