AWWA CEO David LaFrance thanks water professionals nationwide for keeping water safe for drinking
Dec. 16, 2014, marked the 40th anniversary of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), which today includes regulations for more than 90 contaminants. American Water Works Assn. (AWWA) CEO David LaFrance issued the following statement to mark the occasion.

Conventional RO systems treat water at low flow rates and generally require a storage tank. Another factor is taste. For example, RO filtration systems remove nearly all of the minerals that contribute to taste.
