Household Items May Negatively Impact Water Supply
Lurking in every household are hazardous materials to our health and to our environment. On average, households contain between three and ten gallons of hazardous items.

Unfortunately, tremendous damage occurs to our precious water when residents absentmindedly pour materials such as paint thinner, or lye-based oven cleaner down the drain.
