LAKEWOOD, Colo., Feb. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- With
historically cold weather and winter storms leaving multiple cities
across Texas without water or with
boil water orders, Natural Grocers is inviting members of the
Texas communities it serves to
come in for free water from its stores' reverse osmosis water
filtration machines. Free water will be available today through
Tuesday, February 23, 2021.
Power outages across Texas have
impacted water treatment plants triggering a requirement to boil
water before consumption, including eating, drinking, washing hands
and faces, and brushing teeth. The ultraviolet sterilization
process used in Natural Grocers water dispensers disinfects the
water with UV light, designed to provide safe high-quality water
that does not need to be boiled before consumption. Additionally,
via multiple filtration steps, the reverse osmosis process is
intended to filter out suspended particles, chlorine and a wide
range of chemicals, salts, lead, impurities, and more.
To fill up on free water from the organic and natural grocery
retailer, customers should bring their filled receptacle to the
register, along with any items they are purchasing. Customers will
need to provide their own jugs and bottles or select stores will
have an assortment for purchase. The first five gallons are free of
charge, and any additional gallons thereafter are 25 cents each.
To find the closest Natural Grocers store, Texas residents can click here. Currently, the
Corpus Christi store is unable to
provide free water.
