We mark National Drinking Water Week with releases showcasing some work from our latest 'Drink More Tap' effort. Over the last year-plus, we worked with Mural Arts Philadelphia and local musicians to bring the sweet sounds of science and facts to communities unsure about drinking public water in Philadelphia. We are passionate about our love for local water and waterways, and we love seeing others share that passion too.
