Health Tip: Help Prevent Water Contamination
(HealthDay News) -- While the United States has among the world's safest supplies of drinking water, some Americans still ask, "Is my drinking water safe?"

Periodically test your water for contaminants.
Seek guidance for having the test results clearly explained and properly interpreted.
Schedule regular maintenance for your well.
