Thousands of cities across the country, including El Paso are serving water with lead or other contamination problems to millions of people. Till this day, some water systems have contaminants that aren’t regulated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
Bottled water may be a useful short-term source of drinking water, but it shouldn’t be a considered a permanent solution because it is not cleaner or safer than tap water. If you do buy bottled water, look for brands that have been treated with reverse osmosis, distillation, or filtration with an absolute 1 micron (or smaller) filter.
Contaminants Found In Tap Water:
- Radioactive Contaminants
- Vinyl Chloride
