Tap water quality
Tap water can contain different types of contaminants that affect our health. A water contaminant is a substance found in water that has the potential to pose a risk to public health at certain levels. Some contaminants are naturally present in the environment and infiltrate water sources due to erosion. Unfortunately, many of the contaminants found in water are a result of human activities. Industrial waste from factories, refineries and mines all contain harmful substances that can contaminate water sources. Agriculture also plays a role in the contamination of water, as several chemicals used in agriculture can seep into the water system. In terms of microbiological contaminants, many of them are found in the biological waste of humans and animals. For this reason, water sources very close to agricultural livestock can also become contaminated.
