Las Vegas, Nev., April 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
Americans are clearly concerned about their overall quality of life being affected by the environment, according to the 2019 WQA Consumer Opinion Study, and their concern has grown since the last survey in 2017.
The independent survey was conducted by Applied Research-West, Inc., in January 2019. The study offers a look into Americans’ attitudes and concerns about their water. It is the seventh time in 15 years that the Water Quality Association (WQA) has commissioned this professional opinion research team.
Among the major findings:
Most Americans are somewhat knowledgeable about what contaminants might be found in their water supply, according to the study, and, unaided, almost half identify lead as the primary substance of concern.
Consumers identifying lead as a contaminant has grown significantly from previous studies.
The majority of Americans bought some sort of water treatment system when they moved into their current home, according to the study; the overwhelming majority bought a simple and inexpensive system.
The report presents the findings of a national online survey conducted by Applied Research-West, Inc. between Jan. 1 and Jan. 30, 2019. A total of 1,405 adults over 18 and living in private households were interviewed. ARW used a random sampling procedure, and the survey results are accurate within +/-2.6 percent. The results are representative of all U.S. adults over 18.
