Many of us know that our tap water in the Ozarks isn’t the cleanest. This is true for NW Arkansas, SW Missouri, and even Mid-Missouri. Cities such as Jefferson City, Springfield, Bentonville, Arkansas, Joplin and Branson all have some pretty awful-tasting tap water – but do you know what is causing that taste?
We’ve wrote about it before and we are writing about it again because what needs to be said NEEDS to be said: tap water in the Ozarks is not good to drink. It doesn’t taste good and with all the chemicals and additives in it, it isn’t healthy either.
One interesting thing is that the Environmental Working Group (or the EWG for short), is a nonprofit group that specializes in research and advocacy in the areas of agricultural subsidies, toxic chemicals, drinking water pollutants, and corporate accountability. Every year, they test water sources in every state and provide a comprehensive report on the various water quality in said states. As for Springfield, MO., the results are quite interesting.
Quality of Tap Water in The Ozarks
- Chromium hexavalent
- Dichloroacetic acid
- Trichloroacetic acid
- Bromochloroacetic acid
- Bromodichloroacetic acid
- Total trihalomethanes
- Chlorodibromoacetic acid
- Haloacetic acids
- Monobromoacetic acid
- Monochloroacetic acid
This information comes straight from the Environmental Working Group, and is subject to change over time. And if this isn’t enough, sometimes chemicals aren’t the only thing found in the water supply. Well water can contain bacteria and microbes which can cause people to become very sick. This is why it is important to have access to clean drinking water. Additionally, the EWG estimates that up to 100,000 cancer cases in the U.S. are the result of the contaminants in our tap water.
