What’s in my tap water?

The level of contaminants allowed in drinking water, for it to be deemed safe, varies per contaminant.

Under national and European standards, your water supply should be completely free of E.Coli from the water treatment facility to your tap, for example.

However, tiny amounts of more than 30 chemical elements can be present. Contaminants deemed allowable under UK and EU law (and other national standards and regulations) include arsenic, copper, cyanide, cadmium, chromium, fluoride, lead, nickel and mercury – along with pesticides.

ARE THESE CONTAMINANTS IN YOUR WATER?

Whether naturally occurring or man-made, some of these substances may be harmful to human health, if their concentrations are high enough.

Other contaminants, however small, which can be found in tap water, include either microbiological contaminants or chemical contaminants. Microbiological contaminants are microorganisms or bacteria. Broadly speaking, there must be none at all in UK tap water.
