  • North Penn Water Authority - Committed to Providing Safe, Reliable, and Economical Water - Statement By NPWA on Pharmaceuticals in Drinking Water - March 18, 2008
    membranes provide a highly effective multi barrier treatment capability There is simply no better way available to treat drinking water today and we re very fortunate that we ve got it right here in the North Penn region which even many of the largest cities in America do not yet have NPWA meets or exceeds all of the most stringent water quality standards required by the federal and state governments We are held to these high quality standards every day and we have continually performed to these standards without any violation for many many years The drinking water industry is one of the most highly regulated and closely monitored industries in the nation Today the EPA and DEP require all water utilities to test for a far greater number of contaminants than ever before and treatment plants are required to remove contaminants to lower and lower levels This is all part of the proactive nature of the water utility industry to be always more diligent about continuous improvement in our product for the protection of public health We re better now than we were many years ago and we all strive to be even better in the future NPWA did not participate in the studies that were referenced in the recent news articles There is in fact a very large number of contaminants that we are required to test for which we do on a regular basis We do not test for pharmaceuticals in the water because we are not required to do so by any federal or state regulations More importantly even if we did there is nobody in the scientific research community that can say what those numbers mean However given the sensitive nature of this subject NPWA will give consideration to the possibility of conducting such testing
