3 million people worldwide die from preventable waterborne disease. Yet, in Hampton Roads, we can drink from virtually any public tap with the highest level of confidence.
To ensure our tap water is safe for everyone to drink, the Environmental Protection Agency requires water utilities to routinely test the drinking water for certain contaminants like bacteria, pesticides and heavy metals. Our water is continuously tested, and always meets or exceeds the EPA standards for safe drinking water.
