Hey Idaho! Ever wonder how our beloved state ranks when it comes to the quality of our H2O? Well, fear not, it's not the worst! Phew — Alaska takes the cake for that one. However, the water in Idaho isn't the best.

We all know how crucial water is — from cleaning to cooking and, of course, staying hydrated while we explore our awesome outdoors. Especially right now, because we're in the middle of summer, hydration is super important. But let's get down to the nitty-gritty...

According to US News, Idaho sits at number 27 among all states for having the best/worst air quality. And for water quality, we land at 42... definitely some room for improvement!

Now, let's break it down. Our Urban Air Quality here in Idaho is a solid 9, and that means we're breathing fresher air than most other places. High-five to that!

But when it comes to our Drinking Water Quality, 42 isn't the greatest place to be on the list.

It's important to remember that this number reflects the number of violation points per 1,000 residents served in 2019. So, although there's room for improvement, the situation might not be as alarming as it seems. Nevertheless, it's crucial to keep a close eye on water management and treatment systems to ensure continuous progress and a healthier future.

So, let's raise a glass to our lovely Boise and keep spreading the word about clean water! Let's champion clean water initiatives and stay informed about the steps being taken to enhance our water quality.

After all, Idaho's charm lies not only in its natural beauty, but also in the collective effort of the amazing residents to preserve and improve the place we call home.
