Keeping our drinking water clean and tasting good

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON -

Did you know that more than 115 million gallons of water flow through the District’s pipes each day?

An additional 40 million go to Virginia customers!

But when it comes to our drinking water, you might be surprised at how much work goes into keeping it clean and making it taste good.

FOX 5’s Holly Morris visited an area of the Potomac River to see the water before it makes its way to our homes.
