New! Bottled At The Tap Tumblers
We drink tap water, and you should too!
St. Clair River tap water is safe to sip and our hope is to change tap water attitudes and practices. People are using bottled water instead of drinking tap water which is both environmentally costly and economically inefficient. To address this, we are using grant funds from our EGLE Public Advisory Council grant to create custom Drink Up! stainless steel tumblers and are printing signs, creating videos and compiling educational materials to promote tap water drinking.
Seven communities along the St. Clair River rely on the St. Clair River to provide clean, safe drinking water to their residents. About 60% of St. Clair County residents receive their drinking water from the St. Clair River.
The St. Clair-Detroit River Real-time Drinking Water Protection Network collects data on the river’s water quality in real-time to promote water research and education, and as a tool to aid emergency response in the event of spills or other environmental issues. The Water Protection Network includes the St. Clair River, Lake St. Clair, and the Detroit River and provides services to over 4 million people living in Southeast Michigan. Drinking water intake plants are located in Port Huron, Marysville, St. Clair, East China, Marine City, Algonac and Ira Township. These communities are committed to "to ensure clean and safe drinking water for all Michiganders" as identified in Snyder's Michigan Water Strategy.
After many decades of restoration and revitalization work, St. Clair River tap water is safe to sip! Proceeds from sales provide support for our drinking water education and stewardship projects.
