GE Consumer & Industrial has donated 12,500 GE SmartWater(TM) filtration products to District of Columbia residents whose homes have tested above the Environmental Protection Agency's regulatory action level of 15 parts per billion (ppb). Jerry N. Johnson, general manager of the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (WASA), announced the donation. The total retail value of the donation is estimated to be more than U.S. $187,000.

"We are pleased that GE Consumer & Industrial has donated these filters to District residents, to help us to continue to address the elevated water lead levels in some homes here in the District," Mr. Johnson said in a statement. "This is another excellent example of the private sector working with the public sector to tackle an issue of immediate public concern, and we thank GE for this donation."

Gary Metzgar, GM Water Systems at GE Consumer & Industrial, added: "GE is pleased to be part of the solution in helping WASA provide another level of reassurance for the residents of Washington, DC. We have the utmost confidence in our water filtration products and we feel that District of Columbia consumers will find them valuable and easy to use."

WASA will handle distribution of the GE filtered water pitchers (Model # GXPL03D). GE says its SmartWater filtration pitchers are certified by NSF International, an independent test lab for the certification of water filtration products to remove 98 percent of lead in the tap water up to 150 ppb.

Each replacement filter is said to provide up to 40 gal or 2 months of filtered water. A slide indicator on the lid shows when it's time to change the filter. With each pitcher, three replacement filters will be provided by WASA. Additional replacement filters may be purchased at The Home Depot.
