Tainted Tap Water

Thirty-five years after Congress passed the Safe Drinking Water Act, some regulators and environmentalists say the law is now so out of date that it fails to protect people from the most obvious threats.

My water supply in Maryland's Montgomery County failed to meet some federal standards and some health guidelines that are tighter than the federal standards. This is one of the richest, best governed counties in the country, and I filter my water!
