Drinking water quality is a topic that comes up frequently, even in places where it’s not as obvious as it is in the United States.
And while water quality standards vary widely from region to region, a study from the University of California, Berkeley found that drinking water in the Bay Area is “not necessarily as clean as it should be,” according to CNN.
That’s because the California Public Utilities Commission, which regulates the state’s water supply, doesn’t require all cities and towns to meet drinking water standards.
“It’s like saying ‘we don’t want the air in the city,’ ” says Michael A. Coyle, a professor at the UC Berkeley School of Public Health.
“We don’t really care if you live in an air-conditioned city or not, because we can regulate air pollution, so that doesn’t matter much to us.”
In a recent report on the state of water quality in California, the Institute of Water and Environment analyzed water quality data from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.
It found that the Bay area is “on par” with the rest of the country in terms of water contamination levels.
The report noted that the average contamination levels are the highest in California’s Central Valley, but are also lower in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Los Angeles County.
That is, the water in these regions, especially in the West and North regions, is not generally contaminated with microorganisms that can cause disease, as is the case in many other parts of the world.
This is because the Bay region is relatively isolated from the rest.
The study also noted that, because of the relatively low level of water pollution in the Central Valley and the Northern California, “there is very little human or animal-related activity in these areas.”
A study published earlier this year in the Journal of Environmental Health also found that people living in the coastal regions of the state and the Pacific Northwest are particularly at risk of contamination.
But the state does have some pretty good water quality protections, and that’s one of the main reasons why Californians are drinking so much water.
The state requires the installation of filters that filter out harmful substances, such as lead, arsenic and mercury, and some municipalities require them as well.
California’s Environmental Protection Agency also has regulations in place to protect residents from contamination, and there are many local water districts that offer clean drinking water and a variety of services to help people avoid getting sick.
There are some challenges, though.
The California Department of Water Resources says that “water quality is still in its infancy,” and that it’s still trying to figure out how best to distribute the state water supply.
And when it comes to water quality concerns, there’s a lot of uncertainty.
“There are a lot people who think there’s some magic formula that we’re going to get the water to look like the water we drink,” says David A. Reiss, director of the California Center for Disease Control and Prevention, in Los Altos, California.
“And there’s just not enough data to know how effective that is.”
“The good news is that water is being treated more efficiently,” he says.
“So when the California Department Of Water Resources comes out with a water quality report, that’s going to be a big deal.
We’re going take a look at that and see if there’s something we can do to reduce the amount of water we consume.”
The most important thing to remember is that when it’s safe to drink, drinking it is safe to use.
“When it’s a matter of water safety, don
