This paper reviews and presents a compilation of 75 years of scientific research collected on private well water and its safety. It has been undertaken by the Docs for Truro Safe Water group to present and highlight the scientific evidence available to residents and Town decision makers who are concerned with drinking water safety in a variety of settings. Where current standards rely on geo-specific and/or historic data, particular consideration has been given to circumstances particular to the Outer Cape, as well as to research that has appeared in the past two decades.
