It's time to celebrate Greeley's great-tasting water

How often have you thought about your drinking water? In Greeley, we’d venture to say you don’t think about it often -- unless there’s suddenly a funny taste. That’s because Greeley has been known for its outstanding drinking water for decades. Drinking Water Week is May 2-8, so it's time to celebrate.

Greeley has always prided itself on the drinking water it has provided to its residents. The city’s 2017 win in the American Water Works Association contest is evidence of that. The city took home the best tasting and people’s choice awards that year. Greeley water’s continued commitment shines through daily.

Many communities, like Greeley, are fortunate to have reliable access to safe water when they turn on the tap. In large part, this stems from the regular testing water utilities are required to undertake to ensure regulatory standards for water quality are met. Every water system must publish a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR) detailing its water quality.

“Shortly after the coronavirus was declared a pandemic, EPA and CDC reminded us that we should trust our tap water as we normally would for hygiene and hydration purposes,” said American Water Works Association CEO David LaFrance. “This proves to be extremely vital because handwashing is an important way to stop the spread of the virus. We couldn’t do that without our high-quality drinking water.”

Great drinking water doesn’t just happen. It’s the result of the dedication of Greeley’s water and professionals. Whether it’s an engineer designing a capital project, an operator ensuring the safety and quality of drinking water or, a member of a pipe crew maintaining the infrastructure in our community, water professionals work around the clock to ensure tap water is there when you need it.

For several decades, AWWA and its members have celebrated Drinking Water Week, an opportunity for both water professionals and the communities they serve to recognize the vital role water plays in daily lives. Drink up!
