The threat of water contamination is all around us. While nearly 80 percent of the United States population should feel confident about the water coming from treatment facilities, it’s not always guaranteed to arrive at our homes in a safe condition.


External factors such as agricultural runoff, fracking, industry pollution and old lead service lines are leaching harmful chemicals and bacteria into the water after it leaves the treatment facilities. Combating this problem starts by understanding the risk potential of your home.


Whether you live in a rural area, growing suburb or busy metropolis, understanding the water contamination threats in your community can help you find the best solution (See A Comprehensive Guide to Common Water Contaminants for more info). Here’s a deeper look into how contaminants are reaching your water.
