Why are carcinogens present in water supplies in the US?

    Carcinogens may be present in U.S. water due to industrial spills or leaks. Additionally, pesticides and agricultural runoff can make their way into the groundwater, affecting wells. Trace elements, ammonia, nitrate, radon, and bacteria can all have deleterious effects when they contaminate drinking water. Additionally, studies conducted by the U.S. Geological Survey discovered that chlorinating water (which is done to clean drinking water) can create cancer-causing by-products, such as chloroform, bromoform, and dichlorobromomethane. U.S. drinking water can be contaminated due to the results of daily human activities, in residential, commercial, and industrial settings.
