Is Tap Water Safe to Drink?

In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. The Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) was established to protect the quality of drinking water in the U.S. This law focuses on all waters actually or potentially designed for drinking use, whether from above ground or underground sources. The Act authorizes EPA to establish minimum standards to protect tap water and requires all owners or operators of public water systems to comply with these primary (health-related) standards.

EPA requires community water systems to deliver a Consumer Confidence Report (CCR), also known as an annual drinking water quality report, to their customers. Based on the analysis of data from the most recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) required testing, Robinson’s Drinking Water Meets or Exceeds All Federal (EPA) Drinking Water Requirements which can be found in the most recent Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
