Barbourville Utilities is proud of our history providing water tested among the purest in Kentucky. In recognition of Drinking Water Week, here are 5 reasons to choose tap water over bottled water:

1. Tap water is regulated by the EPA 
2. Tap water cost about 1/2 a cent per gallon. 
3. No plastic to make or ship. 
4. Fresh tap water is better for you and the environment.
5. It’s convenient! Tap water is already in your home so there’s no need to go out and buy it.

On the other hand, bottled water is NOT regulated by the EPA, is more than 700 times more expensive than tap water, and plastic bottles are bad for the environment.
