Protecting a Precious Resource

water week 2019

Drinking Water is the essence of life and Superior Tank is proud to support the 2019 AWWA Drinking Water Week!
Drinking Water Week was conceived over 40 years ago by the American Water Works Association (AWWA) to promote the vital role drinking water has in our lives. Only 1% of the water on earth is suitable to drink and without water a human can only survive 4-7 days.
Drinking Water Week highlights the need to reduce water consumption and protect the various sources of drinking water including lakes, underground aquifers and rivers. Here are some basic ways you can make an impact!

  • Turning off the water when brushing your teeth saves up to 4 gallons of water.
  • Taking shorter showers as 10-minute shower can use 20 gallons of water!
  • 30% of total water consumption is outdoor use and only watering landscape when needed can reduce this percentage 0% of total water consumption is outdoor use and only watering landscape
  • Fixing running / leaking toilets can save 200 gallons per day
  • Use a hose with automatic shut off nozzle when washing your car or take to automatic car wash which recycles water
  • Upgrade to water efficient dishwashers and clothes washers: ask your local water agency if rebates are available!
  • Soak up any outdoor oil spills with absorbent then discard into trash
  • Repair cars with fluid leaks to avoid storm water contamination

Superior Tank is privileged to play a role in storing the precious resource of drinking water. Our bolted and welded steel water tanks are a key element in the drinking water distribution infrastructure, ensuring millions of people around the world can store drinking water in a secure and sanitary manner. Our storage tanks are second to none in quality and meet or exceed the worldwide accepted standards for potable water storage set by the AWWA such as the D100 and D103. In addition, we can provide bolted steel tanks with NSF 61/372 Certification for drinking water storage.
Our powder coating system is one of the most environmentally friendly coatings available! We utilize an NSF Certified epoxy powder coating on the interior of our bolted tanks for potable water storage. Additionally, our application process reduces water consumption as it does not use water as the powder coating is applied dry in our production facility.
