Drinking Water Safety


Next »


Drinking water in the U.S. is generally considered to be safe for consumption. However, anyone with a compromised immune system, such as patients undergoing chemotherapy,  transplant recipients, or individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS, should consider taking precautions to prevent waterborne illnesses. Waterborne illnesses can be fatal.

Precautions include:

  • Boiling water  
  • Filtering water 
  • Drinking bottled water. 

If you purchase a filter for home use, look for one that says "reverse osmosis."

Airplane water should be avoided by people with a compromised immune system.

Reports are available on the quality of drinking water in different areas of the U.S. Commercial labs and home testing kits are available to test your water. For additional information, see: offsite link
