Information about Your Drinking Water
Availability of Monitoring Data for Unregulated Contaminants for the City of Cape Coral
As required by the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), our water system, and
approximately 6,000 other public water systems throughout the United States, have sampled
for a series of unregulated contam inants. We monitored for unregulated contaminants in
2018 and 2019. Unregulated contaminants are those that don't yet have a drinking water
standard set by EPA. The purpose of monitoring for these contaminants is to help EPA decide
whether the contaminants should have a public health protection standard. This national survey
is one of the primary sources of information that the EPA uses to develop regulatory decisions
for contaminants in the public drinking water supply.
What should I do?
You do not have to do anything. Your water is safe to drink. The City of Cape Coral's drinking
water meets or surpasses all established federal and state drinking water standards. But, as
our customers, you have a right to know that unregulated contaminant data is available.
