Haloacetic acids are byproducts of the chlorine used in municipal water filtration systems to treat drinking water, and waste water. These harmful toxic acids form when chlorine breaks down organic matter like bacteria. Practically all US tap water and most well water is contaminated by haloacetic acids to some degree. The US EPA regulates the level of haloacetic acids in water supplies to 60 parts per billion, but violations of that standard are common. If haloacetic acid is present in your tap water at the Federal limit, your risk of getting cancer from it is 1 in 10,000.
