The sources of
drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers,
lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and groundwater
wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or
through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and,
in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
The source of
drinking water used by the City of Nebraska City water system is
Groundwater under the direct influence of surface water.
Drinking water is provided by seven wells located North of the

- Contaminants Found in Drinking
including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at
least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of
contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a
health risk. More information can be obtained by calling the
EPA=s Safe Drinking Water Hotline at (800) 426-4791.
- Contaminants that may be present
in source water include:
contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from
sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock
operations and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as
salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from
urban storm water runoff, industrial, or domestic wastewater
discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides,
which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture,
urban storm water runoff, and residential uses.
contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals,
which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum
production, and can also come from gas stations, urban storm water
runoff, and septic systems.
contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of
oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure
that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which
limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by
public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for
contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same
protection for public health.
Some people may be
more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general
population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer
undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ
transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system
disorders, some elderly and infants can be particularly at risk
from infections. These people should seek advice about
drinking water from their health care providers. EPS/CDC
guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by
Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants are available
from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791).
