New App Lets Users Check Health of Waterways Anywhere in the U.S.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) today launched a new app and website to help people find information on the condition of thousands of lakes, rivers and streams across the United States from their smart phone, tablet or desktop computer. Available at http://www.epa.gov/mywaterway, the How’s My Waterway app and website uses GPS technology or a user-entered zip code or city name to provide information about the quality of local water bodies. The release of the app and website helps mark the 40th anniversary of the Clean Water Act, which Congress enacted on October 18, 1972, giving citizens a special role in caring for the nation’s water resources. Forty years later, EPA is providing citizens with a technology-based tool to expand that stewardship

What makes the K5 Drinking Water Station superior to other options?

The K5 is certified to remove more contaminants than any other reverse osmosis system. It has customizable, multistage filters to meet the specific water challenges that you face now or that you may encounter in the future. And thanks to EverClean® Rinse, the K5 uses the same high-quality water produced by the system to clean itself. This keeps it in top working order and automatically extends its life.

What else makes the K5 so unique? It features QuickFlo® technology to deliver a strong, steady stream of high-quality water when you want it. Fact is, the K5 produces more water faster than any other comparable system so you won't need to ration or wait for your water. Plus, the K5 works efficiently with minimal waste, so it's environmentally responsible. And it does it all for pennies a gallon.

Additional features like the MACguard Filter and PureMometer® filter life indicator let you know when it's time for filter changes and prevent you from pushing the filters past their capacities. Its quick-disconnect filter cartridges make changing filters a snap.

The K5 installs under your sink or in any other convenient location of your choice and dispenses your high-quality water through a dedicated, lead-free designer faucet available in a variety of finishes to match your existing décor.

The K5 is smartly designed to be convenient and economical, provide an abundant supply of high-quality water, be easy to use and maintain, and provide the best-tasting water for just pennies per gallon.

We have the chance to protect the Chetco River by ending in-stream mining

We have the chance to protect the Chetco River by ending in-stream mining | Water Stream Quality | Scoop.it

We all love second chances when they come along, and few have been bigger than the one handed to Oregon's Chetco River. Over the years, in-stream gold mining has posed the biggest threat to water quality and salmon spawning in the river. Despite the Chetco's protection under the Wild and Scenic Rivers Act, anyone could claim a piece of the river and even national forestland under the General Mining Act of 1872, and that is exactly what happened.

USGS: Decades-old Nitrate Found to Affect Stream Water Quality

USGS: Decades-old Nitrate Found to Affect Stream Water Quality | Water Stream Quality | Scoop.it

USGS hydrologic researchers have found that the movement of nitrate through groundwater to streams can take decades to occur. This long lag time means that changes in the use of nitrogen-based fertilizer (the typical source of nitrate) — whether the change is initiation, adjustment, or cessation — may take decades to be fully observed in streams, according to a recent study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology.
