The Environmental Working Group (EWG), an independent advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., that's focused on public health and environmental issues, has published a Tap Water Data Base allowing you to see the what the contaminants are in our drinking water and the drinking water across the country. Since 2010, water utilities' testing has found pollutants in Americans' tap water, according to an EWG drinking water quality analysis of 30 million state water records.
The database contains results from testing by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) on drinking water from 2010 to 2015, which includes tests on water from nearly 50,000 water utilities in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. In addition, the EWG incorporated results from water tests done by state agencies. In total, the tests found nearly 270 contaminants in drinking water across the country.
