Tucson Water Quality

This entry was posted in Plumbing and tagged on by .

As a Tucson Resident, are you satisfied with your drinking water? Based on the U.S. EPA’s standards of clean drinking water, our normal city tap water meets basic criteria. Yet Tucson residents spend millions of dollars every year on filters, water services and bottled water. Why are we spending so much time refusing to use tap water?

Many people are becoming more alarmed that there isn’t more testing done. Impurities such as pharmaceuticals, care products, cleaning products and other byproducts are categorized as “emerging contaminants” and are not currently regulated by the EPA. Another reason would be TCE (trichloroethylene), a well-known chemical throughout Tucson in the 1980s when people in South Tucson took ill from drinking from contaminated wells. Also the Colorado River project, called CAP, is a large reason long-term Tucson residents do not trust regular drinking water. Early reports of brown and red water flowing from tap water was a long standing concern.

While we use chlorine to disinfect water from harmful bateria and organisms, chlorine has a lot of negatives. In addition to being just one more chemical that we are exposed to on a regular basis, chlorine as a disinfectant produces byproducts such as trihalomethanes, or THMs. These chemicals can cause cancer. However, they are regulated by the EPA and while our water table is tested to be meet the EPA’s standards, most people would choose not to consume them at all given the choice.

Just like you, we live in Tucson and we care about the things we put in our bodies affect those around us.
