City of Seattle Emergency Water Distribution System

Newmedic Systems was commissioned to produce 300,000 disaster relief 6 quart water bags for Seattle’s emergency water distribution system. The City of Seattle had a firm deadline for their emergency water plan bags and Newmedic Systems completed and delivered all 300,000 bags ahead of schedule.

Newmedic Systems insured that the material used in these bags were an FDA approved polyethelene product that carries a 5 year shelf life. In addition these bags have a unique puncture seal that keeps each individual bag sterile until it is filled. By incorporating this puncture seal system Seattle will avoid residents reusing unhygienic containers that could contaminate the water supply. Use of sanitized bags and the puncture seal ensures a cleaner, safer alternative. The bags provide the added benefits of being disposable and tamper evident.
