Water: Bottled Or Tap?

Water: Bottled Or Tap?

Unlike bottled water, tap water is regulated under the strict standards of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), but there are some contaminants that the EPA does not regulate. Your local water municipality is required to supply you with an annual “Right to Know Report” every July. This report lists contaminants detected in your drinking water and notes any violations that have occurred in the past year. Your water provider is also required to test for microbes several times daily. You can contact your local water municipality to obtain the names and numbers of certified testing labs to have the water from your tap checked. Levels of lead and copper in your water may be higher than official reports indicate because of deterioration of household plumbing and faucets.
