[ARCHIVED] August is National Water Quality Month

2019 Water Conservation

Gulf Coast Water Authority is promoting National Water Quality Month this August and offering suggestions on how customers can protect this precious resource.

National Water Quality Month in August reminds us that we all can take simple steps to protect our water sources from pollution. We rely on our state’s extensive water system for drinking water, recreation and food. According to the Galveston Bay Foundation, half of the population of Texas lives in the Galveston Bay watershed.   

The Gulf Coast Water Authority, which supplies drinking water to most communities in Galveston County, offers the following suggestions to protect this precious resource:

  1. Pick up after pets
  2. Recycle oil
  3. Keep grease and toxic chemicals out of drains
  4. Limit use of pesticides and herbicides. Go natural when you can.
  5. Join a cleanup crew for the Adopt-a-Beach beach cleanup Sept. 21 

Follow the Gulf Coast Water Authority on Facebook for more water quality tips throughout August.
