Contaminants in drinking water could affect many people because we use water every day. Some contaminants in water are naturally found in the environment and include bacteria, parasites, and arsenic. The Safe Drinking Water Plan for California includes the State Water Board's assessment of the overall quality of the state's drinking water, the identification of specific water quality problems, an analysis of the known and potential health risks that m ay be associated with drinking water contamination in California, and specific recommendations to improve drinking water quality.
