How Much Does a Glass of Water Really Cost?



When we think of water, we often believe it to be an endless natural resource. After all almost two-third of this earth is water. Think again!

Only one percent of all the world’s water can be used for drinking. Rest of it is unusable, which makes water a very precious resource that needs to be conserved. Despite this drinking water costs us the least as compared to other household utilities. In most households, combined water and sewer bills average only about 0.5 percent of household income.

Moreover, in United States, the quality of drinking water is highly regulated and is as good as bottled water. Eight glasses a day from bottled water costs you approximately $1,400 annually. The same amount of tap water would cost about 49 cents.

At United Water we work hard every day to ensure that our customers get safe and reliable drinking water everyday. Our water supply comes from clean and protected watersheds, reservoirs and wells. Our goal is to continue delivering safe, great-tasting drinking water at a significant value to our customers that meet or exceed all state and federal standards.
