GLRPPR Sector Resource: U.S. Water Supply and Distribution Factsheet

Title:
U.S. Water Supply and Distribution Factsheet

Abstract:
All life on Earth depends on water. Human uses include drinking, bathing, crop irrigation, electricity generation, and industrial activity. For some of these uses, the available water requires treatment prior to use. Over the last century, the primary goals of water treatment have remained the same--to produce water that is biologically and chemically safe, appealing to consumers, and non-corrosive and non-scaling.
