Just punch in your zip code, click your city/town and take a look at what you've been drinking.

6 contaminants detected in my local water
The levels for all of these are still far below the minimum regulations.
So I have good water I think.

Bromodichloromethane
Chloroform
Chromium (hexavalent)
Dichloroacetic acid
Total trihalomethanes (TTHMs)
Trichloroacetic acid

All of these are known to cause cancer

I've heard it's quite deadly. Many people have died from excessive exposure. If even a small amount gets in your lungs you start coughing like crazy. Too much and you die within minutes.

Estrogen. And it's making me gay. I'm not too bothered by it. But probably other effects that may be long term could be troublesome

I read about a radio contest where a woman consumed too much and died of dihydrogen monoxide intoxication.
