Standard Water Potability Testing Pound Ridge NY:  This checks for the common causes of unhealthy water and sources of low water quality. This testwill give you a basic indication of the level of some of the more common contaminants found in water including, coliform bacteria, e. coli bacteria, nitrates, nitrites, color, odor, pH, turbidity, chloride,  hardness, sulfates, iron, manganese, sodium, and total chlorine.

Bacteria Only Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  Tests for total coliform bacteria and E.coli bacteria.  Both can indicate the water may be contaminated with sewage or similar wastes.  The EPA recommends that home owners in Pound Ridge, NY with private wells  have this test performed at least annually.

Radon Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  Radon is the second leading cause of lung cancer in the United States. Based on a second NAS report on radon in drinking water, the EPA estimates that radon in drinking water causes deaths from lung cancer every year caused by breathing radon released from water, and deaths from stomach  cancer caused by drinking radon-containing water.  It is recommended that Pound Ridge, NY residents have their water tested for radon every 3 to 5 years.

Lead Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  Lead in drinking water usually results from the use of lead pipe in water systems or leadbased solder on water pipes. Water in the plumbing system can dissolve lead from pipes and solder. This is called leaching.

Arsenic Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  Studies have shown that chronic or repeated ingestion of water with arsenic over a person’s lifetime is associated with increased risk of cancer (of the skin, bladder, lung, kidney, nasal passages, liver or prostate) and non-cancerous effects (diabetes, cardiovascular, immunological and neurological disorders).   It is recommended that Pound Ridge, NY residents have their water tested for arsenic every 3 to 5 years.

Copper Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  Too much copper can cause adverse health effects, including vomiting, diarrhea, stomach cramps, and nausea. It has also been associated with liver damage and kidney disease.  It is recommended that Pound Ridge, NY residents have their water tested for copper every 3 to 5 years.

Fluoride Pound Ridge NY Water Testing:  A fluoride level above 4.0 mg/L is not safe to drink. With long-term use, fluoride levels above 4.0 mg/L can cause skeletal fluorosis which is a serious bone disorder.

VOC Water Testing:  Exposure to VOCs can result in many  adverse health effects depending on the type, level and length of  exposure. Health problems can range from minor ailments to major, long-term health complications including:  eye, nose and throat irritation, headaches, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, asthma exacerbation, fatigue, allergic skin reaction, memory impairment and loss of coordination, cancer, liver damage, kidney damage, and central nervous system damage.

Pesticides in Water Testing:  Pesticides are more likely to be a problem if your well is shallow, has less than 15 feet of casing below the water table, or is located in sandy soil and is downslope from irrigated lands such as farms or golf courses where pesticides are.  You should also test your Pound Ridge, NY water for pesticides if someone in your household is pregnant or nursing, an unexplained illnesses has occurred in the family, a dangerous contaminant was found in your neighbor’s well, your water’s taste, odor, color, or clarity changes, or you have a spill of chemicals or fuel into or near your well.

Total Petroleum Hydrocarbon in Water Testing: Health effects from exposure to TPH depend on many factors. These include the types of chemical compounds in the TPH, how long the exposure lasts, and the amount of the chemicals contacted. Swallowing some petroleum products such as gasoline and kerosene causes irritation of the throat and stomach, central nervous system depression, difficulty breathing, and pneumonia.  The compounds in some TPH fractions can also affect the blood, immune system, liver, spleen, kidneys, developing fetus, and lungs. Certain TPH compounds can be irritating to the skin and eyes.

Water contamination can have a negative affect on the health  of you and your family. The effects may be immediate or long term. A USGS survey found that 70% of private wells were contaminated. The EPA recommends that you test for a minimum of coliform bacteria, nitrate and lead, even if you have public water.

In today’s society, we need to do what we can to remain healthy.  The EPA recommends that you have your Pound Ridge, NY drinking water tested a minimum of once a year..
