Austin, TX – May 10, 2011 – From the Heartland down to the Gulf of Mexico, the Mississippi River is flooding homes and farmland and leaving chaos in its path. Everyone understands the need for safe drinking water now while the flood waters rage – it is obvious. However, after the flood waters recede, and homes and businesses begin to be rebuilt, the real danger to flood victims will begin because people will not be explicitly thinking about the purity of their drinking water. They will unthinkingly begin using tap water. Most tap water will have been treated by municipalities, but much can happen between a water treatment plant and the tap. Well water will not have been treated.
Stop to consider what is happening to drinking water as the Mississippi River rages. With flooding beginning far upriver, hazardous wastes including pesticides, petrochemicals, pharmaceuticals, fecal waste from farms and much, much more are being swept down the raging river, contaminating ground water from which drinking water is ultimately derived. As the river sweeps through, contaminants accumulate and head downriver.
Where do these contaminants end up? In the soil and ground water along the entire path of devastation. Particularly high concentrations will accumulate at the mouth of the river where all of the surging waters have flown.
In response to this devastation and significant health risk, eFilterWater today announced that they are offering all residents of areas affected by this tragedy 20% off the purchase of a water filter system as well as free shipping, indefinitely. Elizabeth Fairchild, Director of Customer Service said, "Everyone is focused on efforts to help with the immediate situation, as is needed right now. However, as we have seen with so many major tragedies, once the immediate crisis is over, media turn to other news stories and the victims are forgotten. While the situation is ripe, we wanted to get the word out that we want to help as people start rebuilding their lives. Folks in these areas will need significant drinking water filtration for many years to come and we want to offer assistance in the way we know best."
eFilterWater believes health is THE most important aspect in life. Without health everyone suffers. This negatively affects every other aspect of life. With water making up 55%-65% of the body, contaminant free drinking water is critical to achieving good health. As such, eFilterWater is the industry leader in educating consumers about the tremendous impact that water has on your health and well-being and helping you consistently have the cleanest water, in a way that is eco-friendly and healthy for the environment, too.
