The Safe drinking water is an essential component of our everyday lives. The Safe Drinking Water Act was passed in 1974 for the purpose of having regulations that ensure that there is clean water available that is safe to consume. This is a federal law that is meant to be followed everywhere throughout the country. If you felt this law has been violated and you have been directly impacted, you may be entitled to compensation for any health problems that may have developed.

The following compounds are some of the many compounds that must closely be monitored when it comes to drinking water:

  • Selenium
  • Nitrates
  • Arsenic
  • Fluoride

In every public water system throughout the US, the Safe drinking water act applies. Currently, there are over 160,000 public water systems throughout the United States. Public water systems are required to monitor compounds and other contaminants that can be harmful to those consuming the water. If you feel you have been affected by a public water system that wasn't following the regulations set by the Safe Drinking Water Act, it is important to seek legal help.

How are public water systems protected? The Safe Drinking Water Act requires certain methods be used in making sure that water is safe. Drinking water is assessed and protected, collection systems and wells are collected, and making water quality information become public information.
