The Water Tree Store

Our crowded, modern world is more polluted than nature intended, and it takes a toll on our water. According to the EPA, common water contaminants in US municipal water include microorganisms, disinfectants, inorganic chemicals (like arsenic, fluoride, lead, and mercury), organic chemicals, and even radiation! These pollutants in our water can hurt our well-being, but we can’t avoid our need for water—it is necessary for life. Water is the best way to stay hydrated, focused, and aware. We need it to operate smoothly, facilitate digestion, lubricate joints, push out toxins, prevent fatigue from dehydration, & give us energy. Water is the easiest way to maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

At Dream Tree Family and Water Tree Stores, clean, pure water is only our starting point! More often than not, bottled water companies and filtration systems end up removing both the good and the bad from water. This leaves what we call dead, acidic water—water with a lower pH and without the essential minerals of water found in nature.

Our health is very closely linked to the pH levels of the water and blood circulating in our bodies. A low pH contributes to an acidic body that is a breeding ground for disease which is why Dream Tree & Water Tree Stores offer alkaline water solutions. Alkaline water helps to raise the pH of your body so that it can function like it should and hydrate more efficiently.

A higher level of acidity in your body isn’t the only factor that contributes to poor health. Dehydration can slow your metabolism and lead to weight gain, impair your mental abilities, and leave you feeling exhausted, hungry, and grumpy. This is another area that we go above and beyond because many of our products are able to create very small clusters of water molecules, or microclusters. Water that is delivered to your cells in microcluster form are able to hydrate you faster and more effectively.

And don’t be fooled by other alkaline water companies that use electrical ionizers to zap water into a dead alkaline condition! Our patented ceramic conversion process transforms water to an alkaline state while adding essential minerals and antioxidants. Dream Tree water is living water! That's why we offer water solutions for the way that we live! From Antioxidant Alkaline Water to filtered shower heads & Whole House Systems we have something to offer every need and budget.

U.S. Water Infrastructure Given ‘D’ Grade by ASCE Group

With World Water Day being tomorrow, March 22nd, this grade of 'D' doesn't look very good for the U.S.  Water quality, whether it's the water we drink, cook with, or bathe in should be the best quality water possible.

The U.S. drinking water and sewage infrastructure earned a barely passing grade of D from the American Society of Civil Engineers today, which said at least $1 trillion is needed to fix the problem.
The ASCE in its quadrennial Report Card for America’s Infrastructure said the drinking water infrastructure improved slightly, to a D from an almost failing D- in 2009, even as U.S. pipes and treatment plants near the end of their expected lifespan. With almost 240,000 water main breaks a year, it would take more than $1 trillion to repair and replace systems, the report said, citing the American Water Works Association.
Almost 14,000 of the country’s 84,000 dams that help provide water and power were rated “high hazard,” with the average age of an American reservoir 52 years. The report said the U.S. needs to spend about $298 billion over the next 20 years to repair and expand wastewater and stormwater systems, whose grade improved marginally from a D- to a D.
“The grades are in and the nation’s drinking water and wastewater infrastructure is still in a poor state,” said Chief Executive Officer Jeff Sterba of American Water Works Co., the largest publicly traded U.S. water company. “If it were a student, such ongoing marginal performance would not be acceptable.”
Sewage Runoff
The ASCE report said investments in new and improved treatment plants will cost as much as 20 percent of the $298 billion, with expanding pipes and wastewater networks making up the balance. Better piping will reduce sewer overflows, when stormwater overwhelms plants and holding tanks, and raw effluents run off into waterways.
With state and local governments now responsible for about 98 percent of the capital investments in water infrastructure, the engineers’ group proposed to finance needed work by boosting government-backed revolving loans with $7.5 billion in federal funds and using more tax-free private activity bonds to help pay for private water investment projects.
It also recommended establishing a federal water infrastructure trust fund and a Water Infrastructure Finance Innovations Authority to borrow from the federal government at U.S. Treasury rates to finance water projects.
“Not meeting the investment needs of the next 20 years risks reversing the environmental, public health and economic gains of the last three decades,” the ASCE said.

What is the quality of the water that finds it's way to your house?  What pipes and pools did it flow thru on the way?

Consider what is offered in the way of filtering systems for water that enters your house.  If finances are an issue, as most of us have during these economic times, I would suggest finding a source of good quality source of drinking water first.  Check out some of the suggestions we have at WaterTreeCompany.com.
