Marshall Services offers advice on how to maintain water quality around your home
Eastern Pennsylvania, like much of the eastern United States, has seen some soggy weather—and it’s probably not over. Consistent, heavy rain can present challenges in keeping our water healthy and contaminant-free. Marshall Services, a leading HVAC, plumbing, electric and heating oil company serving Montgomery County, Pennsylvania since 1945, has been keeping water safe for decades.
August is National Water Quality month in the United States. According to the Environmental Protection Agency, 40 percent of the nation’s waterways suffer water quality problems. Water pollution can negatively affect the use of water for drinking, household needs, recreation, business, fishing, education and transportation. Public water systems treat and deliver billions of gallons of clean water each day to our homes, schools and businesses. Much of this water comes from rivers and lakes. It is treated to remove particulates, chemicals and bacteria before being delivered to consumers. Our local and federal governments make large investments to ensure our water is safe and drinkable, but the responsibility does not end there.
