water use

Every day, millions of people turn on their faucets, but give little thought to the water that streams out.  We drink it, bathe in it, swim in it, and cook with it. But have you thought about how much water is required to produce the things used in your daily life? Almost every manufacturing process from clothes to cars to food to computers all depend on water, and a lot of it.

Many people believe that bottled water is a better choice than tap water, but did you know that nearly every element of the public water treatment and delivery processes are regulated by the state and federal governments to ensure a safe, quality drinking water?  These same standards are not required for bottled water. 

Why spend more than you need to on necessities like water?  Let’s compare the costs…

value waterWhere would we be without tap water…How would we clean fruits and veggies, dishes and clothes, water plants/landscapes, or wash our cars? 

  • * Where would we shower or brush our teeth? 
  • * How would we flush our toilets?
  • * How many businesses would have to suspend operations or relocate entirely?
  • * How would our Institutions from hospitals to firehouses to schools function?

You simply cannot beat the price on a service that delivers public health, fire protection, economic development and quality of life.

Victory Drive will reopen to all traffic this evening, Thursday, January 14, 2016 by 8:00 p.m. following the completion of emergency sewer main repair work by the Columbus Water Works.  The road was closed on January 3, 2016 after a large sanitary sewer main collapsed on Victory Drive in the east bound lane. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding while this work was being completed.
