Minnetrista Water Quality Background

The EPA has established two standards for additional contaminants in tap water:
MCL: Maximum Contaminant Level – The maximum allowable level of a certain contaminant
MCLG: Maximum Contaminant Level GOAL – The level where studies have found ZERO HEALTH RISKS, aka the “Health Limit”
