Potable Water in India - Part 2
Drinking enough water every day is essential for good health. Water hydrates the cells, regulates temperature and helps flush out toxins from the body. On average, adults should consume 2 liters (0.5 gallons) of water per day.
What are the parameters of potable water?
pH (the scale is 0 to 14, with 7 being neutral)
specific gravity (also called density) (roughly the mass per unit volume - in kg/m3) total dissolved solids (TDS) (measurement of the concentration of all ions and other dissolved substances that affect taste and odor. Most common measurement units are mg/L) particulate matter (PM10), which is a measure of particulates smaller than 10 micrometers in diameter (about 1/1000th the width of a human hair). If it's too high, this can cause breathing difficulties or even asthma attacks.
What are different drinking water standards?
The Safe Drinking Water Act regulates the quality of public and private drinking water supplies, including surface waters such as lakes, rivers and streams. The act also applies to groundwater that is used for human consumption or contact with skin. The federal standard for drinking water sets a maximum level of contaminants in drinking water, but states can set stricter standards if they choose. State-by-state drinking water standards vary widely, so it’s important to check your state regulations before you drink tap water.
