Lead, nitrates, and chlorine can all be harmful and are routinely found in water from city utilities and water wells.

Nitrates are a common ingerdient in fertilizers, but can lead to health issues when a large amount is taken in.

In the Middleton area, it’s important to test water (especially if it is provided by a well) because of the typical agriculture lifestyle.
Your water could also be contaminated with lead; especially if you don’t have a newer home. If your house was built prior to1975, it is important to have your water tested. If exposed to lead, young children can have development issues.
Municipal water treatment facilities use disinfectants to kill harmful bacteria and viruses in the water.
