Wondering What’s in Your Water?

Contamination doesn’t discriminate; it can affect both water from the city or a private well. Don’t you want to know what’s in the water you drink, shower in, and use to clean your dishes and clothes? The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recommends that you have your water tested once a year. Whatever the contaminant and whatever the amount of it present in your water has negative effects on your health. Water is such a huge part of our lives, it’s important to know what’s in it.


Contaminants vary by regions throughout the state. Possible contaminants produced by humans include cleaning supplies, chlorine, fertilizer, and insecticide. Other contaminants from natural sources include bacteria, lead, copper, radon, and iron (hard water). These contaminants may be invisible and tasteless, but greatly damage your appliances, plumbing, and the health of you and your family. Even if you live in the city, you aren’t completely safe. City water is tested before it enters your home, but depending on the age of your plumbing and material it’s made out of, contaminants may still leech into your water. Water contamination can also be affected by natural events such as heavy rain and flooding.
