ZeroWater Praises Maryland’s Clean Water Initiatives

June 12, 2012

BENSALEM, Pa., June 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Recently, the state of Maryland passed legislation to provide more funding to improve the quality of the Chesapeake Bay, storm water pollution rates and improve waste water treatment plants. These initiatives are all in response to deteriorating water quality, a problem that ZeroWater is helping consumers address with its advancements in water filtration. A recent article highlights Maryland’s efforts to improve water quality in the state. The article stresses that clean water is essential for good health and a priority to state officials. ZeroWater applauds Maryland’s efforts and is committed to continue to deliver clean tap water to consumers through its countertop filtration pitchers.

“Water is imperative to life and well-being, and the State of Maryland’s commitment to improving water systems is noteworthy,” said Doug Kellam, CEO at ZeroWater. “As Maryland works to improve water quality across the state, ZeroWater will ensure that the tap water Maryland residents consume is 99.9% free of total dissolved solids (TDS).”

Additionally, Maryland is looking into runoff prevention and reduction measures to preserve water quality. Governor Martin O’Malley signed a bill that doubled the Bay Restoration Fund. The fund supports improving wastewater treatment plants, reducing nitrogen in septic systems and planting cover crops. Another recent bill was passed to establish stormwater utility fees to address both urban and suburban pollution caused by stormwater. The state is paying close attention to removing phosphorous and nitrogen from public water sources. These harmful elements, also known as TDS, are found in many local water sources that supply home tap water systems.

Consumers looking to better their health by drinking quality water need look no further than ZeroWater. ZeroWater filters are recognized by both the Water Quality Association and NSF International for designing the only tap water filtration system that can eliminate virtually all TDS.

All ZeroWater products include a laboratory-grade water testing meter and guarantees a “000″ reading on Total Dissolved Solids (TDS) to ensure great-tasting water. The company was also first to offer a filter recycling program. ZeroWater offers a variety of broadly available and affordable options for every person’s home tap water filtration needs, including a 23-cup Filter Dispenser, a 10-cup Pitcher, an 8-cup Pitcher and a 6-cup Space Saver Pitcher. Products are available online at ZeroWater.com, Amazon.com and many other online resellers, or at national retailers, including Target, Walmart, Bed Bath & Beyond, Meijer and Fry’s.
