Water Contamination, a Rampant Problem in California

Following an official report that the water supply of more than half of all Californians begins contaminated, residents are reminded that they can find treatment products that have undergone independent testing for effectiveness.

“Nothing is more basic than clean and safe water,” said Dave Haataja, executive director of the Water Quality Association. “With final barrier protection in the home, residents can feel assured that the water they are drinking has gone through rigorous treatment.”

The Associated Press reported last week that “more than half of California’s population relies on a drinking water supply contaminated by arsenic, nitrates and other contaminants, though most communities blend or treat their water to make it safe.” The information comes from a new report by the State Water Resources Control board.

Arsenic was the most-detected naturally occurring contaminant, while nitrate was the human-caused contaminant detected the most.

“With so much water contaminated at its supply source, people are going to feel more than ever the need for final treatment at the tap,” said Haataja. “We have dedicated our resources to stringent testing overseen by outside professionals to help ensure consumers are getting what they expect.”

WQA tests and certifies products for effectiveness. The association uses independent standards established by the NSF International/American National Standards Institute (NSF/ ANSI). Products that have passed testing can be found at wqa.org.

Nitrate in drinking water can be responsible for a temporary blood disorder in infants called blue baby syndrome and can be dangerous to those with autoimmune deficiencies and cancer. It presently appears that two treatment methods, ion exchange and reverse osmosis, are most practical and economically feasible for nitrate removal.
