Facts & Myths
"We strive for perfect information and enable educated decisions to provide healthier water for all."
Almost daily there are stories in the news about the latest problem with our drinking water supplies.
Lead in town water and our schools, toxic plumes traveling underground and into our aquifers, pesticides, pharmaceuticals, chlorine - to name just a few issues.
Legally, municipal water has to meet government standards, and municipalities, government agencies, and officials do a phenomenal job given the resources at their disposal and the increasing environmental challenges. However, this does not mean that your drinking water is free of contaminants or additives. Legal guidelines for municipal drinking water districts were established in many instances more than 40 years ago, while the world of chemical developments designed to make our lives better and easier has far surpassed what the EPA currently has mandated as hazardous to our environments and our health. On Long Island and the New York Metro area, virtually every water district in every town adds Chlorine to disinfect its water supply. While this is a necessary process to help kill harmful bacteria, your family does not need to drink, bathe in or otherwise use chlorinated water in your home.
The Water Quality Problem
For those on well water, it is critical to ensure that the well water is safe to drink as it is often not treated under legally mandated guidelines. Wells can breed bacteria which lead to the presence of sulfur and/or iron in the water, causing unpleasant taste and odor. Wells often have lead pipes or components that can cause the lead to seep in to the drinking water.
Clogged pipes, higher utility bills, shortened life for appliances, white residue on fixtures, dry skin, and dry hair are just some of the effects hard water has on you and your home.
THE BOTTLED WATER ISSUE
The bottled water industry is less regulated and often no safer than tap water. In fact, most bottled water comes from municipal sources. Labels can be misleading and often deceptive as to the source of the water.
The cost per gallon of bottled water if often considerably higher than a gallon of gas - then there is the impact of creating, delivering, and disposing of plastic bottles on the environment. There are also health concerns regarding cancer-causing chemicals from the plastic leeching into the water in the bottle.
