Contaminants in Frisco’s Water Supply: Protect Your Health with Colorado Water Purification

Clean water is essential for our health and well-being, but recent findings have shed light on concerning contaminants present in Frisco’s water supply. According to the EWG Health Guidelines, a comprehensive assessment has revealed the presence of 13 contaminants that require immediate attention. Understanding these contaminants is crucial to safeguarding the health of you and your loved ones. Let’s explore each one:
  • Barium: Naturally occurring in rocks and soil, high levels of barium can harm the heart, kidneys, and nervous system.
  • Chromium (hexavalent): This carcinogenic form of chromium originates from industrial emissions and contaminated soil, posing a serious health risk.
  • Fluoride: While added to water to prevent tooth decay, excessive fluoride levels, especially in children, can lead to health complications.
  • Hexachlorobenzene (HCB): Although banned in most countries, HCB persists in the environment due to past industrial use and can be found in drinking water.
  • Monobromoacetic acid: Formed as a disinfection byproduct during water treatment, the levels detected in Breckenridge’s water supply are considered safe.
  • Monochloroacetic acid: Another disinfection byproduct from water treatment, the levels found in the water supply are currently deemed safe.
  • Nitrate: A compound present in fertilizers and occurring naturally, high levels can be particularly harmful to infants under six months old.
  • Nitrate and nitrite: This combination of compounds, found in drinking water, can pose significant risks to infants, especially those under six months old.
  • Radium, combined (-226 & -228): A radioactive element leaching into water from rocks and soil, high levels can harm bones and increase the risk of cancer.
  • Strontium: Naturally occurring in rocks and soil, strontium can leach into water from groundwater, potentially impacting bone health.
  • Uranium: A radioactive element found in rocks and soil, uranium can leach into water from groundwater, leading to kidney issues and an increased cancer risk.
  • Vanadium: Naturally present in rocks and soil, vanadium can seep into water from groundwater sources, posing risks to kidney health.
