Santa Rosa Water Loves Tap Water


Hi, I’m Alicia and I love tap water! As a member of the Santa Rosa Water team, I know the level of care and attention that each of the 250+ employees at Santa Rosa Water puts into delivering high-quality drinking water directly to your tap. Ditch the single-use plastic bottles and show your love for tap water this month by choosing a reusable water bottle. #IHeartTapWater 


Hi, I’m Brent and I proudly #TakeItFromTheTap! Did you know that tap water is tested 50x more frequently than bottled water? As a Santa Rosa Water System Operator, I am tasked with protecting your water quality. I know that the level of careful testing we perform means you are getting safe, high-quality drinking water. Show your love for tap water by choosing to use a reusable water bottle. 


Hi, I’m Kathy and I #IHeartTapWater. As a Principal Lab Analyst for Santa Rosa Water I am responsible for testing the tap water that is conveniently delivered to taps across the city. I love to #TakeitFromTheTap because I know that the testing we conduct ensures that our community’s water is safe, meeting or exceeding all health and safety requirements, and is high quality. 


Hi, I’m Nate, a Senior Water System Operator at Santa Rosa Water, and #IHeartTapWater because it’s a healthy choice. With no sugar and zero calories choosing to #TakeItFromTheTAP makes sense, and when I’m thirsty it’s just what my body needs! Plus, I get to work with the #CrewInBlue to operate and maintain our community’s public water system. So you can rest easy knowing you are receiving high-quality drinking water straight to your tap. 


Hi, I’m Pedro and I love tap water! It’s pretty rewarding to work at a place that provides the community with an essential need like tap water. I love that working here has only further shown me that our tap water is safe, healthy, and high quality. Why do I love tap water? Because I personally know and respect the employees that work so hard to provide it.
