Do you get your water from a well, or from a municipal supply? If you’re on ‘city water’ then water quality is probably not something you spend much time thinking about. After all, it’s city water, which means someone else is out there, making sure the water is safe to drink, right?
It’s a good assumption, and you’re correct to assume that there are strict guidelines about water safety and that municipalities are mandated to provide their citizens with a supply of safe drinking water.
Ask yourself though, how well that worked out for the people in Flint, Michigan? Not very well, right, and the worst part is that according to the EPA’s data, there are more than a thousand communities, scattered across the country that have water even worse than Flint’s.
