Drinking Water

Published 2010

While most Nebraskans rely on tap water, some use bottled water or vended water for their primary source of in-home drinking water.

Allowable maximum levels for potentially harmful contaminants are enforced for public water supplies, imported bottled water, and domestic bottled water sold through interstate commerce. Individual states may or may not enforce allowable maximum levels for bottled water that is sold only in the state in which it is bottled. Private water supplies in Nebraska are not subject to federal or state regulation.
