Water Testing Washington, DC
Drink Plenty of Water—with Confidence.
Water quality is extremely important for any family. Poor water quality can lead to health problems, unpleasant taste and odor, costly treatment systems, and more. While the law mandates that public water systems test and treat the water they provide, this testing only covers the water before it leaves the treatment plant. This water must then pass through miles of piping, some of which is in disrepair or contains lead, before it enters your home's plumbing system.
The EPA Safe Drinking Water Act groups contaminants into two categories: Primary (those with health effects) and Secondary (those with aesthetic effects). It is possible to have water with no Primary contaminants above the recognized limits, but with Secondary contamination that imparts a bad taste, color, or odor.
If your water comes from your own well, your water is only tested at your request or often when your property is sold. The EPA recommends well owners test their water annually or when they suspect a problem. Wells should be tested for coliform bacteria, nitrates, total dissolved solids, pH, and any other suspected contaminants.
Well water can be contaminated with bacteria and chemicals. Common sources of contamination include seepage from septic systems, manure runoff, pet waste, road chemicals, as well as dissolved chemicals naturally present in the groundwater, such as calcium, sulfur, chloride, or iron.
