The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) requires the City of Wilmington, and all other water suppliers in the US, to report yearly on specific details about testing for a number of contaminants in our water. Chemical and biological monitoring provides the data that helps suppliers such as the City of Wilmington make key water quality management decisions to ensure the freshness and purity of our drinking water.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. To ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulates bottled water, which must provide the same protection for public health.
