How Safe is NYC’s Drinking Water? A Novel Comparison of Federal and Health-Based Maximum Chemical Level Disparities in NYC Water Samples

Students in Dr. Dustin Wheeler’s Science Forward seminar analyzed published datasets for NYC water parameters and tested their own water samples for contaminants.

Their findings shed light on inconsistencies apparent in annual NYC Water Supply & Quality Reports.
