EARTH DAY 2020

Tankdiver.us

Today is Earth Day.  Every year on April 22, trees are planted, litter is cleaned up, and awareness for the issues plaguing the planet are raised, in honor of the holiday, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2020.  The first Earth Day was on April 22, 1970. Environmentalists took to the streets with concerned citizens and pop culture icons, like poet Allen Ginsberg, who were asked to speak on behalf of Mother Earth.

The 1970s saw the passage of the most comprehensive environmental legislation in U.S. history, including the Clean Air Act, the Water Quality Improvement Act, the Endangered Species Act, the Toxic Substances Control Act, and the Surface Mining Control and Reclamation Act. In addition, just eight months after the first Earth Day, Richard Nixon approved the creation of a new organization tasked with monitoring the nation’s natural assets: the Environmental Protection Agency.

Our mission is to promote the cleaning of potable water storage tanks. This page provides free information on the importance of water storage tank cleaning. We are currently working on a documentary film called Out of Sight – Out of Mind, What Is In Your Water? If you have any comments or would like to share first hand knowledge of water contamination please e-mail Ron at Ronlooks@aol.com.

This page is supported by Ron Perrin and his for profit company Ron Perrin Water Technologies. If you would like a quote to inspect or clean a water storage tank or tower please call 817-377-4899 or click here.

An article published by WATERONLINE reports that the U.S. EPA is being cut to the bone. Drinking water regulators that were already stretched thin will simply not have the resources they need to enforce drinking water regulations designed to protect the public. The EPA is being systematically deconstructed, it is more political than ever, but with everything else that is going on in Washington who even notices this?

Public safety demands that water regulations like the Revised Total Coliform Rule (RTCR) be enforced.

The WATERONLINE ARTICLE By David Coursen, Environmental Protection Network, goes into detail about the cuts:

“More than 27 million Americans are served by community water systems that do not fully meet health-based drinking water standards. Many community water systems draw their water from surface waters, but nearly half a million square miles of such waters fail to meet one or more standards for water quality, and the list is growing each year.

U.S. EPA Administrator Andrew Wheeler says that unsafe drinking water, not climate change, is the world’s greatest environmental challenge. So it should be no surprise that EPA’s budget proclaims “clean and safe water” as a central agency goal.

What is surprising is that the EPA budget proposes jaw-dropping cuts of $1.4 billion from water protection and restoration programs.”  READ THE ENTIRE ARTICLE HERE.

“Out of Sight – Out of Mind What’s in Your Water?“, A new documentary will shine a light on what ends up inside our water storage tanks and towers.

This new look into our water systems is being taken from a different point of view.

In a partnership with the Ron Perrin Clean Water Tank Project, the film is being produced by Ron & Robert Perrin of Ron Perrin Water Technologies (RPWT) to let viewers see what they encounter on a daily basis. 
RPWT has been inspecting and cleaning water storage facilities since 1997.  The film goes into great detail of how microbial pathogens can use the sediment on the floor of a water storage tank, to get a foothold in the water distribution system.
The EPA has identified bacteria, protozoa and even viruses that can use the sediment commonly found in water storage for a habitat.
Yet there are no national regulations on inspecting or cleaning potable water storage tanks.
Microbiologists will explain the science behind water tank contamination from legionella and other microbial pathogens. 
The documentary will expose a wide variety of cases where entire communities have been affected.

The Ron Perrin Clean Water Tank Project was granted 501(c)3 status by the IRS in August of 2018. This will allow us to raise funds to promote and explain the need for cleaning water storage tanks and towers. Cleaning tanks and towers is often forgotten as the interior of the tank is simply out of sight and out of mind. Instead, the focus of many water utilities is on adding more chemical disinfectants to meet federal and state guidelines. Bacteria, protozoa, viruses and other microbes can use the sediment at the bottom of storage tanks as a habitat to grow and eventually become a health concern. Going forward, we will be able to apply for grant funding and ask the public for donations. All donations are Tax deductable. “Out-of-Sight Out-of- Mind – What’s in your water?”, is our first film project that will benefit from new funding.

This blog has been sponsored by Ron Perrin for several years to echo the need for our drinking water tanks to be cleaned.  Ron’s simple project has now become an organized mission of education to the water utility industry to correct this often overlooked problem. Please explore our blog and video’s we look forward to your comments and support.
