This week I want to take a look at the amount of pipe it takes in the US to get us fresh clean water.


According to the US EPA, there are approximately 1 million miles of pipeline or aqueducts in the US and Canada.  That is enough to circle the earth 40 times.



Also, it cost over $3.5 billion annually to operate water systems in the US.


As you can see it takes dollars and miles of pipe to get water from its source to the end user.
