In an effort to reduce the amount of contaminants found in tap water, many counties across the country have enacted a statewide drinking water control ordinance. Some of these ordinances have provisions for home filtration, while others prohibit home use of any type of filtration device. The Georgia Department of Natural Resources is responsible for enforcing these laws and has made public education available to homeowners regarding safe water use.
Homeowners should realize that they are the only ones responsible for their water supply. This means that if the chemicals used in a municipal treatment facility are causing you to get sick, you can sue them. In fact, some of these companies may not be providing you with enough of these chemicals to make any difference. That is why it is important for you to do your research. You also need to understand your local ordinances, as well as the laws governing your area.
