How clean is your drinking water? - Fox29 WFLX TV, West Palm Beach, FL-news & weather

How clean is your drinking water?

A new online database is showing people their drinking water is not entirely free of contaminants.

The Environmental Working Group spent two years collecting data from the government on contaminants found in testing at water utilities.

Now, anyone can find out what’s in their water by typing in their zip code on EWG’s website. 

Bill Walker, vice president and managing editor of EWG, says he thinks this study has revealed the need for stricter federal standards for water contamination, especially to prevent the pollution from happening in the first place.
