What's In Our Drinking Water


Scientists recently found a harmful chemical called "chromium-6" in the tap water of 31 US cities.

But now chromium-6 has broken out of its containment barrier, and scientists say it's popping up elsewhere - including our neighbor state, California. So what's in our drinking water? Does it have chromium? How do we filter it out? What's the best way to have clean drinking water? We ask the experts.
