Radio personality Angelo Cataldi recently moved to Philly, and it didn't take him long to become an ambassador for our city's top-quality tap water.
Thanks to a special guest calling into his popular morning show, he can now officially boast that title as Philly's first-ever Honorary Tap Water Ambassador.
After having a taste at the spigot that instantly won him over, he saw news coverage about recruiting efforts for an exciting new PWD-partner project: the Tap Water Ambassadors program.
Cataldi loves Philly tap so much, he made a (very persuasive) pitch to become a Tap Water Ambassador on air during his show.
Tapping H2O Advocates
The grant-funded Tap Water Ambassadors program, inspired by PWD's customer survey results, is raising the profile of Philly's top-quality water in communities where uncertainty about water quality and safety push many residents to purchase expensive bottled water for home consumption.
Our partners include the PennEnvironment Policy and Research Center, Keep The Change and Post Landfill Action Network. The first corps of ambassadors will consist of 25 Philly residents—true believers in our water quality—who can speak directly to their neighbors about the many perks of choosing to drink Philly tap at home.
While we're still reviewing the hundreds of hopeful Ambassadors who got their applications in before the March 25 deadline, PWD Commissioner Debra McCarty granted Cataldi with Honorary status for his help in spreading the word about Philly tap as safe, high quality, sustainable, and affordable.
