It’s hard to pick the worst thing to find in your tap water from this list of disgusting things — they’re all so bad! Yet all of them are potential contaminants, which have turned up in drinking water supplies from time to time — some more regularly than others…

- Mining runoff
- Runoff from orchards
- Erosion of natural deposits
- Runoff from glass and electronics production
Possible health effects from excessive long-term exposure include skin damage, circulatory system problems, and greater risk of cancer. Yikes!
