Drinking Water, Pools & Beaches

Water is essential to everything we do and great effort is taken to ensure it remains as safe as possible. To control the level of contaminants in the nation's drinking water systems, the US Environment Protection Agency (EPA) sets drinking water standards. Swimming pools - while great for recreation - come with a certain amount of inherent risk not limited to drowning and pool injuries involving their related structures. Dangers linked to beaches can often be attributed to lack of education or use where there are no lifeguards on duty.
