For the vast majority of U.S. households, the water coming in through the water main is provided by municipalities responsible for making sure there is an adequate supply of potable (safe to drink) and palatable (pleasant to taste) water to meet the demands of the community. A smaller percentage of U.S. households have home water well systems which supply their water main.
The municipalities, for the most part, do a great job of meeting the minimum drinking water requirements for the regulated contaminants, especially considering the number of households they supply and finite budgets. In fact, municipalities actually make finishing the job substantially easier and more affordable. However, there is only so much that can realistically and economically be done by a municipality, which is one of the reasons why they are only mandated to meet minimum drinking water requirements. It is also unrealistic to think that any public water supply would be able to completely remove all of the emerging contaminants, known or unknown, regulated or unregulated.
