How safe is the water you drink? You may not be able to see, taste or smell contaminants in your water that can be negatively affecting your health.
What can you do? Here are steps you can take to safeguard your health:
- Get Educated: Research where your water comes from and what contaminants it contains. Visit http://water.epa.gov/action/protect to get helpful tips–especially if you have well water. This link also includes ways to prevent contamination. The EWG created a drinking water quality database that covers 48,000 communities across 45 states and the District of Columbia. Visit www.ewg.org/tap-water/home to search what is in the water in your community.
- Don’t Just Substitute Bottled Water: Bottled water is even less regulated than public water. Plastic bottles contain additional contaminants that can leach into the water. Plus—bottles put an additional burden on the waste stream.
- Take Action: Purchase a water filtration system that has been independently certified to reduce the contaminants in your water. Look for systems with the Water Quality Association (WQA) or the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) seal.
