Water and Your Health
Water is the basis for life.
Many global and national health and environmental agencies provide excellent resources to help us understand the critical role of clean water and wastewater treatment for our personal and social well-being.
“Water is one of the most essential components of the human body. Water regulates the body’s temperature, cushions and protects vital organs, and aids the digestive system. Water not only composes 75 percent of all muscle tissue and about 10 percent of fatty tissue, it also acts within each cell to transport nutrients and dispel waste. And, because water composes more than half of the human body, it is impossible to sustain life for more than a week without it.”

Clean, safe, drinking water. It’s vital to every aspect of life.
That’s why we’ve partnered with the National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA®), to support their Dispose My Meds program.
Together, with your local pharmacies, we’re working to ensure that unused and expired prescription drugs are disposed of in an environmentally-friendly way.
Join us in this important mission, and help us keep our water supply healthy and prescription drug-free.
