Substances that can be in your water

To ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the U.S. EPA prescribes regulations limiting the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by the public water systems. U.S. Food and Drug Administration establish limits for contaminates in bottled water. Drinking water, including bottle, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of these contaminants does not necessary indicate that the water poses a health risk. The sources of drinking water include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs and wells.As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals, in some cases radioactive material, and substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activities. Contaminants that may be present in source

water include: microbial contaminants, inorganic contaminants, pesticides and herbicides, organic chemical contaminates and radioactive contaminates. More information about all contaminants of concern and their potential health effects can be obtained by calling EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800) 429-4791.
