BACKGROUND/RELATED STRATEGIC GOAL:

 

Recently staff was made aware of an initiative at the Home Depot store in Jensen Beach to encourage customers to purchase in-home water filters. Staff visited the store and took a brief survey being offered. The person taking the survey made statements that the local water is contaminated, and you shouldn’t drink it without using a filter.

Martin County tap water was compared to nine varieties of nationally and regionally available bottled water brands by:  source of water, treatment technologies, ten fundamental water characteristics and cost per volume.  The results of the analysis are contained in the attached PowerPoint Presentation.
