Frequent Questions

Is the issue of drinking water being contaminated able to be resolved?

The contamination of drinking water can occur because of human and natural factors. Because not all incidents can be foreseen and because contaminants can make their way into a water supply through erosion and other processes, no available technology can eradicate the issue of drinking water contamination one hundred percent. EPA’s Safe Drinking Water Act ensures that all public water systems monitor and maintain a quality of drinking water that does not impact human health.
