Are there any side effects with drinking chlorinated water?

The risk with chlorination depends on the type of exposure and quantities taken in. Chlorine is a known carcinogen, but is more harmful in gas form and when used with surface water sources. You are exposed to chlorine in swimming pools, some pharmaceuticals, household cleaners, and public drinking water throughout the region and nation.

Surface water resources tend to form higher amounts of disinfection byproducts than groundwater. This is due to higher organic substances in surface water than in ground water. Vera supplies customers with groundwater.

If you have any medical concerns, consult your doctor.
