Do you remember when we dipped a ladle in the creek and drank deeply of its cool, clear water? Contaminants affect water quality from incredible distances. Now, domestic water wells must be tested before being used.
Bacteria, viruses, and microbes found in water wells seriously impact our health. The World Health Organization estimates that 3.4 million people die yearly from water-related diseases. Diarrhea and gastrointestinal illness caused by contaminated water cause more than 100,000 illnesses per year.
Protection from Contaminants
The United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) established standards in their National Drinking Water Regulations. The regulations describe the level of contaminants allowed in drinking water. They detail the Maximum Contaminated Levels of contaminants such as:
- Giardia lamblia
- Fecal coliform and E. coli
Not recognizable by many, experts know these names. They ensure your drinking water satisfies EPA regulations and is safe to drink.
Water Well Testing
In the United States, Salmonellosis in contaminated water affects more than 40,000 people. The risks to human health become significant when you add in the effects of other contaminants. The EPA established minimum testing standards for drinking water. Routine domestic water well testing satisfies the regulations. If you want to make sure your well water remains safe for human consumption, then call AOC Environmental. They test wells in the entire Texoma area.
