About this event:

Part I: Greater Cincinnati Water Works—Ensuring Good Water Quality from Source to Tap

Part II of this lecture series, (which will occur sometime around Earth Day, April 22 2022,) will feature advocacy and legal strategies to protect water and other aspects of our environment.

Location: Online - Zoom

Presenters: Jeff Swertfeger, Superintendent of the GCWW and Bruce Whitteberry, Assistant Superintendent of the GCWW

Cincinnati water has a great reputation for being clean and safe. It even tastes good! Yet we hear of threats to its water quality – lead in pipes still showing up, PFAS chemicals arriving from upstream, chemicals unregulated by the EPA leaching in.

On World Water Day, Woman’s City Club invites the community to learn from the people responsible for the safety of Cincinnati water about how it’s done. The Greater Cincinnati Water Works is our local water utility that treats, tests, and supplies water – currently more than 43-billion gallons a year to more than 1.1 million customers.

Q & A will follow after lecture and presentation session.

This educational seminar will be presented on Zoom.
