TEA Students Urge Everyone to DRINK TAHOE TAP

Our 4th-grade Ponderosa crew recently cut some vocals on the chorus of the "Tahoe Tap" song Singer Songwriter Joaquin Fioresi was commissioned to write for our friend and founder of Tahoe Water Suppliers Association - Madonna Dunbar.

Tahoe Water Suppliers Association (TWSA) water purveyors provide some of the finest drinking water in the world to Tahoe homes and businesses, 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, for less than a penny per gallon! So whether you are a local or someone visiting our region, we urge you to kick the bottled water habit and drink from the tap.

Municipal water systems are more rigorously tested and monitored than the bottled water industry. Choosing tap water over bottled water whenever possible and supporting increased federal funding for safe and affordable public tap water. Tap water is better than bottled water when it comes to people’s health, wallets, and the environment.

Food & Water Watch published a report “Take Back the Tap,” which supports findings that bottled water is generally not cleaner, safer or healthier than tap water. Consumers can offset the waste and pollution associated with the single-use plastics created by the bottled water industry during production and transportation.

So put down the plastic bottles and fill up your reusable water bottle with our most precious local resource delicious Tahoe Tap!
