Tap water Mineral Water Drinking water is water that is intended to be ingested through drinking by humans. Water of sufficient quality to serve as drinking water is termed potable water whether it is used as such or not. Although many sources are utilized by humans, some contain disease vectors or pathogens and cause long-term health problems if they do not meet certain water quality guidelines. Water that is not harmful for human beings is sometimes called safe water, water which is not contaminated to the extent of being unhealthy. The available supply of drinking water is an important criterion of carrying capacity , the population level that can be supported by planet Earth As of the year 2006 (and pre-existing for at least three decades), there is a substantial shortfall in availability of potable water in

What do you, the trees, and a hamster have in common? Give up? You all need water. All living things must have water to survive, whether they get it from a water fountain, a rain cloud, or a little bottle attached to the side of a hamster cage. Without water, your body would stop working properly. Water makes up more than half of your body weight and a person can't survive for more than a few days without it. Why? Your body has lots of important jobs and it needs water to do many of them. For instance, your blood, which contains a lot of water, carries oxygen to all the cells of your body. Without oxygen, those tiny cells would die and your body would stop working. Water is also in lymph (say: limf ), a fluid that is part of your immune system , which helps you fight off illness. You need water to digest your food and get rid of waste, too. Water is needed for digestive juices, urine (pee), and poop. And you can bet that water is the main ingredient in perspiration, also called

The DEQ has primary enforcement authority in Michigan for the Federal Safe Drinking Water Act under the legislative authority of the Michigan Safe Drinking Water Act. As such, the division has regulatory oversight for all public water supplies, including approximately 1,500 community water supplies and 11,000 noncommunity water supplies. In addition the program regulates drinking water well drilling. Michigan has more households (1.12 million) served by private wells than any other state, with approximately 25,000 domestic wells drilled per year. The DEQ also investigates drinking water well contamination, and oversees remedial activities at sites of groundwater contamination affecting drinking water wells.

Over 1 billion people worldwide have no access to safe drinking water. The United States is fortunate to have one of the best supplies of drinking water in the world.

About the Program The Department of Environmental Protection has the primary role of regulating public water systems in Florida. Authority derives from Chapter 403, Part IV, Florida Statutes and by delegation of the federal program from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. The Department has promulgated a number of rules in the Florida Administrative Code. A public water system is one that provides water to 25 or more people for at least 60 days each year or serves 15 or more service connections. These public water systems may be publicly or privately owned and operated.

Drinking Water Directive
Announcement of stakeholder consultation and registration The Drinking Water Directive (DWD), Council Directive 98/83/EC , concerns the quality of water intended for human consumption. The objective of the Drinking Water Directive is to protect the health of the consumers in the European Union and to make sure the water is wholesome and clean. To make sure drinking water everywhere in the EU is indeed healthy, clean and tasty, the Drinking Water Directive sets standards for the most common substances (so-called parameters) that can be found in drinking water. In the DWD a total of 48 microbiological and chemical parameters must be monitored and tested regularly. In principle WHO guidelines for drinking water are used as a basis for the standards in the Drinking Water Directive. While translating the Drinking Water Directive into their own national legislation (transposition of the DWD), the Member States of the European Union can include additional requirements e.g. regulate additional substances that are relevant within their territory or set higher standards. But Member States are not allowed to set lower standards as the level of protection of human health should be the same within the whole EU.

Fluoride Water Filters
Filtering fluoride from drinking water is not easy. Carbon based filters only remove 40 to 60 percent of fluoride. A special fluoride cartridge is needed for more complete removal of flouride. Our fluoride filtration cartridge uses a fine mesh activated alumina media specifically designed for high-capacity fluoride reduction. Don't settle for a filter that removes only half of the fluoride from your drinking water, these filters remove 95% of fluoride from typical municipal water.

Why Use a Fluoride Water Filter?
Addition of fluoride to municipal water systems has been controversial for years. Mounting scientific evidence links fluoridated water to increased cancer death rates. One example is the 1977 study by Dr. John Yiamouyiannis and Dr. Dean Burk. They monitored cancer rates over a twenty year period in 10 cities in the United States with fluoridated water, and 10 cities without fluoride. They found an increased mortality rate from cancer in the cities with fluoridated water. Another, more recent example is a doctoral dissertation from the Harvard School of Dental Medicine that found a strong, statistically significant relationship between fluoride in tap water at levels commonly found in American water supplies, and the rare but often fatal form of bone cancer, osteosarcoma, in boys.
