US Government Invests in PVC Pipe for the National Mall Water Project

Feb 2018

Clean water is essential to live. From drinking water to irrigation, we depend on access to safe water each and every day. Waste water removal is also essential to life. Modern society needs this protection to reduce the spread of illness and disease. That’s why the U.S. government is investing in long term solutions to ensure the infrastructure is in place to meet the demand of our Nation’s capital. As part of a multi-phase project to restore the National Mall, miles of PVC pipe are being installed. These new sustainable systems will improve drainage, collect storm water for irrigation, reduce the use of potable water and improve regional water quality.Clean water is essential to live.

Clean Water: Brought to you by Chemistry

The American Chemistry Council created a video about how chemistry is essential to clean, fresh drinking water. Elementary chemistry tells us that water in itself is a chemical (H2O). But, it also needs chemistry for human use and consumption. For more than a century, chemistry has helped purify, protect, and conserve water so communities around the globe can thrive. This video shows you how.
