Tap water: Buyers beware

Buyers are scrambling to get a handle on the surging price of tap water.

The price of a gallon of regular tap water jumped 40% to $2.84 a gallon on Tuesday, according to the latest data from the Federal Trade Commission.

The jump comes as consumers across the country are scrambling for a cheaper alternative to tap water for home use, which can be contaminated by bacteria and lead paint.

Many cities and states have passed restrictions on lead-based paint.

Some states also require consumers to flush the water down the toilet after using it.

That has caused water bottlenecks, which have become an issue for millions of Americans who rely on tap water to drink, bathe and cook.

The shortage has prompted a surge in people searching for cheaper alternatives.

“They’ve been searching everywhere they can to find tap water,” said Andrew Mowry, a consultant in the consumer research group Morningstar.

“It’s been crazy.”

The problem started in the spring when the EPA revised its standards for lead in drinking water, including the amount of lead that should be added to tap tap water in parts of the country where there is high lead contamination.

The EPA also lowered the amount people are supposed to be able to flush with the tap.

The lead standard was later lifted.

“The EPA has said that the EPA is not going to issue a rule on tap tap tap lead,” said Mowy.

“We’re still waiting on that.

But I think they’re still not going after it yet.”

The EPA revised the lead standard for water from August 2016 to June 2018.

Now, in some parts of Texas, New Mexico and Arizona, tap water should be able get up to 1.5 times as much lead as tap water that was allowed under the old standard.

But that doesn’t mean that tap water is safe to drink.

The American Chemistry Council, a trade group, has criticized the EPA’s change, saying it could cause people to drink water tainted by bacteria or lead paint in a dangerous way.

The group says that drinking tap water contaminated by lead is a health risk, not a drinking water safety risk.

In fact, there’s a significant number of people who are drinking tap tap waters that have not tested positive for lead.

That means that the number of drinking water users who are likely to be drinking unsafe water is very low.

A person who drinks tap water at home or in a vehicle that is not in a well is still at risk of getting contaminated by the water.

In a statement, the EPA said that while the agency is not ruling out the possibility of a rulemaking, it is taking a “thorough review” of the situation and is looking at “all options” to address the issue.

The agency said it will also look at ways to help prevent the spread of bacteria that can cause lead poisoning.

Consumers should be aware that the water supply in some areas may be more contaminated than others.

In parts of New Mexico, tap tapwater from the Sierra Nevada is at least 20 times as safe as tap from the Rio Grande, according the group.

Consumers have reported that tapwater that is in poor condition or not well-maintained has been contaminated with mold and bacteria, which could be harmful to health.

The CDC recommends consumers flush their tap water with a solution of 50% chlorination.
