The Truth About Water Contaminants

The EPA regulates 104 toxic contaminants and is considering listing another 116 chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and biologicals. Chromium-6, popularized by Erin Brockovich, is not on either list. Credible watchdog groups say the number of contaminants in water on these lists should be as high as 2,200. Water districts are mandated to keep contaminants below certain levels, but often fail. Many people rely on carbon filters for protection. They simply can’t do the job. And bottled water and reverse osmosis have their issues, too.
