EWG Provides Tap Water Database

Do you know what’s lurking in your tap water? The Environmental Working Group (EWG) has made it easier to find out.

In July, EWG released an online tool to help consumers learn more about the quality of their tap water and find ways to filter out potentially dangerous contaminants, including arsenic, atrazine and chromium-6. According to EWG, more than 1 million people have used their Tap Water Database to learn more about the water flowing from our faucets.

The EWG is a nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to protecting human health and the environment. Its mission is to empower people to live healthier lives in a healthier environment. With breakthrough research and education, the EWG drives consumer choice and civic action.
