Private Drinking Water Systems Webinar

Friday, April 11, 2014 | 1 p.m. ET/ Noon CT/ 11 a.m. MT/ 10 a.m. PT

Unregulated, private water systems provide drinking water to almost 15 percet of the U.S. population and can be laced with contaminants such as arsenic, nitrates and lead that are routinely filtered out of regulated public drinking water systems. How can states and their public health systems gauge the impact of these contaminants and keep private water systems clean and healthy? What are some important considerations for state lawmakers to consider from a public health perspective about unregulated private water systems?
