DC Water General Manager: Serve Tap Water at Presidential Inauguration

Citing the quality and value of tap water, George Hawkins, DC Water general manager, appealed to the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies to offer tap water as a beverage choice during the 57th Presidential Inauguration Ceremonies.

In a recent announcement, you selected bottled Saratoga Spring Water for inaugural ceremonial  events when local tap water is a clean and affordable option.

If you choose to provide costly, environmentally harmful bottled water, we encourage you to at least provide attendees with a choice and also offer local DC tap water”
