ZeroWater Scam Debunked as Clean Water Initiatives Take Center Stage
BENSALEM, Pa., July 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — While many Americans believe that poor water quality only applies to rural and underdeveloped areas, a new report from Patch.com reveals that even metropolitan areas need protection. The article reveals a new effort, recently voted on and approved by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, to improve and maintain clean drinking water through an additional tax on local property owners. The initiative, referred to as the “Clean Water, Clean Beaches Water Quality” fee, would collect an approximate $276 million annually from more than two million property owners in Los Angeles County. Although many residents may be opposed to the additional charge, ZeroWater, a water filtration company, notes that the plan is necessary to protect local health.
The company, known for its patented five-stage ionic filtration system, has recently been attacked by several claims that the product is unnecessary and relies on false data. However, the new information on Los Angeles County drinking water has weakened arguments of a ZeroWater scam, by showing that toxic drinking water is a real threat. According to the article and Gail Farber, director of the Department of Public Works, the county’s water pollution rates are highly vulnerable. With storm water runoff listed as the main cause of water pollution, “county waterways are fouled with trash, infection-causing bacteria and toxic chemicals.”
ZeroWater comments that such toxins, or total dissolved solids (TDS), are linked to many major medical conditions that include cancer and problems related to nervous system, kidney, circulatory and gastrointestinal health. In a recent press statement the company commented, “The actions taken by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors underscores the importance to monitor the distribution of your drinking water.”
However, it may take some time for these improvements to take place, as the article notes a current debate on the voting process. Votes are scheduled for collection through mail-in ballots next March, but many concerned citizens feel that the vote should be part of a general election as a way to make every resident aware of the new tax. ZeroWater remarks that such disputes can slow down the intended goal – to make a healthier environment for everyone in Los Angeles County.
Since ZeroWater is committed to providing a low-cost solution that delivers quality filtration to remove inorganic matter from the drinking water, the company notes that those looking for a quicker solution can rely on the company’s products. While residents of Los Angeles Country wait for results on the new plan, five-stage ionic water filtration can help ease pollution concerns by delivering water that is virtually TDS-free.
