Abstract

This study will cover the impact of drinking water’s source on the water quality of that source, these sources being, well and city water. There is a fierce debate between which source is safer. In less developed areas, and less developed countries of the world, city water is far safer than well water. However, Chapin, SC is in a well developed area of the world. When it comes to developed areas of the world, well water is safer than well water in less developed areas. This is due to scientific innovations with well pipes. Meanwhile city water is treated and monitored by an organization, oftentimes healthy amounts of minerals are added to this water to make it healthier, such as fluoride. So if well water is safer in well developed areas and city water is always safe then which is better in well developed areas, leading the question to be asked: To what extent is the water quality of drinking water impacted by its source (well or city) in Chapin, SC.
