Is bottled water the answer?

Approximately 40% of all bottled water comes from a public water system‚ just like kitchen tap water.  As shocking as that statement is, it might be the good news. At least Public water systems offer some type of filtration and disinfection and generally have stricter EPA regulations to follow than FDA bottled water regulations.

 It’s estimated that 60% of all bottled water is exempt from FDA bottled water regulations

Learn the truth about bottled water, the labeling and how to understand what you are really buying and drinking.

​​​​The Environmental Protection Agency monitors about 90 contaminants in drinking water. They have set “two” levels for contaminants in drinking water (all quotes taken directly from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency - EPA’s regulated contaminant information)(1) .




The important element of the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) is the wording “below which there is no known or expected risk to health” and the Water Supply Systems are not required to meet this contaminant level or submit reports based on these contaminant levels. 

The second contaminant level allows for 33 contaminants to have levels above the first level the MCLG (which is the level "below which there is no known or expected risk to health")




​The Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) is the level that violations are required to be reported by the Water Supply Systems. The EPA has reported there were 17,519 violations of Water Supply Systems for either failing to monitor or for not even submitting their reports. How many more health based violations might there have been if those 17,519 Water supply Systems would have complied with their required contamiant monitoring and reporting?  Remember theye are currently 33 monitored contaminants that even have “higher” Maximum Contaminant Levels (MCL) than the Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG) which is the level at which there is no known or expected risk to health. Following is what the EPA says about Water Supply Systems providing water with contaminants above the Maximum Contaminant Levels.

There is a complete chapter reviewing the different types of water filtration systems on the market. This chapter will help you understand their filtration limitations and strengths and could save you hundreds or thousands of dollars in making sure you purchase the right type of equipment if it's necessary.

"What's in my Water? is a compilation of thousands of pages of research data from the Environmental Protection Agency, the Center for Disease Control, the Department of Public Health and more, presented in an easy to understand non technical format along with "Action Points"  and information as to what steps the consumer can take to protect, limit or eliminate potentially dangerous contaminants from affecting their drinking water.

"What's in my Water?" has been completely Revised and Updated in 2015

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) monitors about 90 contaminants with Water Supply Systems that supply drinking water to consumers.  The latest EPA national violation report states there were

  • 8.522 Violations reported by Water Supply Systems for health based standards which means contaminants in the drinking water being supplied to consumers that exceeded the maximum contaminant level allowed by the EPA.
  • 1,992 violations for Water Supply Systems failure to use the properly required technique to remove one or more contaminants before it is safe to drink,
  • 17,519 Water Supply systems that were in violation for failure to monitor for or report to the state the level of a contaminant as required under the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Now consider how many of those 17,519 Water Supply Systems that did not conduct the required monitoring or submit their report could also have provided contaminants above the allowed EPA Maximum levels?  Unfortunately the problem is far more widespread than people believe and it is affecting families throughout the country every single day.

40% of Bottled water comes from a public water supply just like water from your kitchen faucet


“A health-based violation means that either a system has exposed their users to what EPA has judged as an unreasonable risk of illness, or a system has failed to treat their water to the extent EPA has judged necessary to protect their users from an unreasonable risk of illness in the event that the regulated contaminant is present in source water”  Environmental Protection Agency (3)

​"Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general populations. People undergoing chemotherapy, living with HIV/AIDS, transplant patients, children and infants, the frail elderly, and pregnant women and their fetuses can be particularly at risk for infections". Environmental Protection Agency

First Level: "Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG). The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety and are non-enforceable public health goals." (1)

Second Level: "The Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) which is the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology and taking cost into consideration. These levels are enforceable." (2)
