Is my drinking water safe?

Your water continues to be safe to drink and use based on the EPA health advisory level. Water from your tap meets every federal and state standard for safe drinking water. There have been no exceedances of state or federal regulations for 1,4-dioxane or any other drinking water contaminant. Levels of 1,4-dioxane detected in District wells and drinking water reservoirs are consistently below the EPA health advisory level. A health advisory is a guideline that represents an estimated acceptable level for a substance in drinking water based on health effects information. For more information, see the Agency for Toxic Substance & Disease Registry website
