A report by the non-profit Environmental Working Group (EWG) found that water supplied by at least some utilities in all 50 states contained a known carcinogen called radium, reports CBS News correspondent Anna Werner.Radium is just one of hundreds of contaminants found in drinking water systems nationwide like arsenic, cadmium, pesticides and metals including hexavalent chromium and lead. In Newburgh, New York, the state is building a brand new water treatment plant to remove a toxic chemical known as PFOS from the water supply with the price tag of $50 million.But not all cities can afford a major overhaul of their treatment systems. So what's a consumer to do, if they want cleaner, safer water at home? CBS News interviewed NSF International DWTU expert Rick Andrew to seek the answers and tips for consumers about these questions on 31 Jan., 2018.

 NSF International's Consumer Tips for Choosing A Water Filter to Reduce Contaminants

Recent studies and news reports have many Americans concerned about the possibility of contaminants in their drinking water. Fortunately, a wide variety of residential drinking water treatment and filtration devices are available. But how do consumers choose a filter that is sure to work?

NSF International, the global public health organization that led the development of national drinking water standards in the United States, independently tests and certifies drinking water treatment units and filters so consumers can be sure the products do what the manufacturers say they will do. This is especially important for filters and devices that claim to reduce potentially harmful contaminants like arsenic, lead, PFOA, PFOS, microcystin and radium. > Read more
