People are flocking here to seek out new opportunities. However, the enormous number of people, combined with an increase in industry, and of course our regular flooding occurrences, all have enormous impacts on the quality of our water. The City of Houston’s water treatment district alone is tasked with the huge responsibility of providing water to over 2.3 million people.
According to the Environmental Work Group (EWG.org), there have been 10 contaminants detected in our water supply that exceed EWG health guidelines. These include Arsenic, Bromodichloromethane, Chloroform, Chromium, Dibromochloromethane, Dichloroacetic acid, radium(-226 & -228), Total trihalomethanes, trichloroacetic acid, and Uranium(pCi/L) all of which are known carcinogens*. This is not just being seen in Houston, water quality concerns are popping up all over our nation. The City of Houston is still and has remained in compliance with legally mandated federal standards, but do federal standards match your standards?
From the food you eat, building materials, clothing, harsh cleaning chemicals, and of course the water you drink and bathe in, there is growing concern with chemicals affecting our health or the health of our loved ones. Minimizing our exposure to toxins by means of air purifiers and water contaminant reduction systems doesn’t have to be difficult. Just one call to Abacus can give you peace of mind.
