Water Report of Contaminants in Deerfield Beach Drinking Water

When you live in a city, you'll receive a yearly water report breaking down levels of various contaminants in the drinking water during the previous year. The water report shows the maximum contaminant level, or MCL, of each contaminant, which is the amount that the contaminant can't go over for your water to be safe.

In the Deerfield Beach, FL water report, the report shows how close the city got to certain MCL levels and whether it ever went over the limit during the year. If the city had any violations, you will see the steps it took to correct the problem on the water report. Water reports also teach you about steps your city takes to keep your water clean.

This article shows information about the results of the 2015 Deerfield Beach water report.

Deerfield Beach Contaminants

Many contaminants in water can have negative consequences on your health. That is why they have an MCL they shouldn't go over. For example, when there is E.coli bacteria in the water, the water generally has other contaminants that can give you diarrhea and other digestive symptoms.

Residents of Deerfield Beach didn't have to worry about the contaminant levels in their water in 2015 because the city didn't have any violations within the year. The city kept it within levels that are considered safe.

Is Deerfield Beach Water Completely Clean?

While the Deerfield Beach contaminant level didn't go beyond the limit, the water still had small amounts during the year. For instance, the Deerfield Beach copper level was .04 ppm when the MCL is 1.3 ppm. It had 0.003 to 0.004 ppm of barium when the MCL is 2. Some contaminants had slightly higher levels, such as 2.4 ppm of chloramine with an MCL of 4.0 and 52 ppb of haloacetic acids with an MCL of 60.

If you want to have completely clean water, it helps to run your city drinking water through your own water machine at home. This will help catch contaminants still in the water. Choose a reverse osmosis system or other high-level water system to get the most contaminants.
