Water quality of our drinking water really does matter for health. Often drinking water is contaminated by high levels of arsenic, fluoride or pathogens, and we, naturally, think it is safe to drink.
Cities as well as rural communities can have badly filtered and cleaned water. In cities, much of the contamination can come from industry, subways, vehicle run-off, drains, and trash that is thrown on the street. In rural areas, the danger from contamination can be just as high as in urban areas with runoff from waste-water and from farms – animal waste or otherwise.
Under the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA), EPA sets legal limits on the levels of certain contaminants in drinking water. The legal limits reflect both the level that protects human health and the level that water systems can achieve using the best available technology. Besides prescribing these legal limits, EPA rules set water-testing schedules and methods that water systems must follow. The rules also list acceptable techniques for treating contaminated water. SDWA gives individual states the opportunity to set and enforce their own drinking water standards if the standards are at least as strong as EPA’s national standards. Most states and territories directly oversee the water systems within their borders.
Many times, public filtration is ok, although some contaminants do get through. However, if you are using a well, your water is not being filtered. Poor wells, or gas-drilled wells, can increase the risk. Either way, have your water tested to see if a treatment unit it really needed. Minneapolis Water Systems can test your current water supply.
