What is in my drinking water?
All drinking water, including bottled water, usually contains small amounts of impurities. Ground water can dissolve naturally occurring minerals, such as nitrate, from the earth’s crust. Ground water can also pick up substances that are a result of human or animal activity, such as coliform bacteria. However, the presence of an impurity does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. The Westford Water Department fully complies with all monitoring and reporting requirements of the Safe Drinking Water Act, and your drinking water meets all Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) health standards. For more details on the quality of your drinking water, see the Westford Water Department’s most recent Consumer Confidence Report (CCR).
