Facts on Drinking Water is a series of fact sheets that provide information on a variety of parameters, such as bacteria and chemical substances, that can have an impact on the quality of drinking water.  Some parameters are known, or suspected, to have an impact on health, whereas others only affect the taste, smell or color of drinking water and pose no health concern.
