Publication Abstract

Understanding Your Water Quality Analysis Webb, Dan, George Czapar, 2014  Illinois State Water Survey, Champaign, IL,  ISWS C-185    Full Text Available

Having your well water tested is an important step to ensure safe drinking water. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency establishes drinking water standards, such as maximum contaminant levels (MCL) and secondary maximum contaminant levels (SMCL), and public water supplies are required to test their water routinely for a list of regulated contaminants. For private well owners, however, water testing is their responsibility. The following guide is intended to help customers understand the results of their water quality analysis.
