1:5:10:325 EcoTip: Municipal drinking water must be tested for a number of different chemicals and contaminants. These test results are available upon request and many communities post the results on line. If your water comes from a well, or you have concerns about your water quality, you can have it tested for many of the common chemical contaminants.
