Want to learn more about what's in your drinking water?
HDR, an international firm that plans and designs water treatment and delivery systems, has released the 15th edition of its Safe Drinking Water Act wall chart. The chart, available for download on the HDR website, lists all of the existing U.S. primary drinking water regulations in an organized and easy to understand format.
Using the chart, residents can search for specific contaminants and find health effects, maximum contaminant levels (the allowable level of contaminants in public drinking water systems) and associated monitoring requirements and comments.
HDR’s website also has links for readers interested in learning more about water treatment and drinking water regulation.
Cape Fear Utility Authority customers can see how their water compares to the allowable limits. Users are able to view all CFPUA testing data and can compare the utility's results to the corresponding standards on the chart.
