Frankfort On Tap
We’re lucky to live in a community where safe and clean drinking water is local and available at the turn of a tap. We are proud of the quality of water provided by FPB’s water treatment plant. So proud, in fact, that we have named it Frankfort On Tap! This month, we are excited to launch our Frankfort On Tap water branding campaign to promote the value of our public-sourced tap water here in Frankfort and surrounding counties.
Frankfort On Tap vs. Bottled Water
Bottled water is the fastest growing segment in the beverage industry. But did you know the EPA regulates the filtration and disinfection methods of all tap water while the FDA offers no certain guidelines when overseeing such procedures of bottled water?
And while the FDA tests bottled water, if sub standard quality is determined, there is no law prohibiting the further sales of unsatisfactory water.
Bottled water is sold in 20 ounce sizes and can be purchased in vending machines at the same price as soft drinks. Assuming you’re able to find a $1 machine, that works out to roughly 5 cents an ounce while Frankfort On Tap is less than 1 cent per gallon.
Bottled water also means more plastic, which means more oil - up to 47 million gallons per year - to produce. And plastic has a slow decay rate. There are even islands of plastic swirling endlessly in the sea - causing significant risk to marine life, killing birds and fish.
In the end, there is no comparison: Frankfort On Tap is better for you and the environment.
