Is your home's water clean? This is a question that lingers in a homeowner's head when drinking and utilizing water from the tap. Consequently, this is also a question we ask ourselves when we go to a public pool or drink from a water fountain.

The first step to protect your health and the health of your family is learning about what may impact the quality of your source of drinking water.
Microorganisms are bacteria, viruses, and parasites sometimes found in water. Shallow wells are at greater risk of contamination. Runoff, or water flowing over the land surface, may pick up contaminants from wildlife and soils. This is often the case after a flood. These organisms can cause a variety of illnesses. Radionuclides are radioactive elements such as uranium and radium. They may be present in underlying rock and ground water.
Radon is a gas that is a natural product of the breakdown of uranium in the soil and can also pose a threat. Radon is most dangerous when inhaled and contributes to lung cancer. Although soil is the primary source, using household water containing radon contributes to elevated indoor radon levels. Radon is less dangerous when consumed in water, but remains a risk to health.
Nitrates and nitrites are inorganic compounds. Usually from human activities, they may also be found naturally in ground water. They come from the breakdown of nitrogen compounds (such as fertilizers) in the soil. High levels of nitrates and nitrites in drinking water have a more significant health impact on fomula-fed infants. Heavy metals occur naturally in underground rocks and soils.
Heavy metals from natural sources may be a concern in some areas, but are not often found in household wells at dangerous levels. Naturally-occurring heavy metals include: Arsenic Cadmium Chromium Lead Selenium
Fluoride: High levels of fluoride occur naturally in some areas and can contaminate private wells. Fluoride is helpful in preventing tooth decay; however, excessive consumption of fluoride can damage bone tissue. Too much fluoride can also cause tooth discoloration in young children.
