One of the widely spread misconceptions among homeowners of Haymarket, VA, is that if they are getting their water for the household from a municipal supply, there is no need to test it. They are usually under the impression that it’s the duty of the municipality people to provide them with safe, good-tasting water.
However, the truth is that this is not entirely correct. While towns are supposed to provide safe drinking water, you must understand what the term “safe” means here. The EPA defines the term “safe” in very broad terms. To be categorized as “safe”, it is enough if the water they supply won’t kill you. Remember, the supplied water doesn’t have to taste good or be odorless. If you have moved a lot in your life, you must be well aware that water can taste very different at different places. It is also possible that some towns fail to provide their citizens with water that is not contaminated. For example, remember what happened in Flint, Michigan. Citizens of Flint had no clue what was happening until they started getting sick.
What is worse is that what happened in Flint was not an isolated case. As per EPA data, more than a thousand towns have serious issues with the water they provide to their citizens. This is why we say that public water system testing in Haymarket, VA is very important.
