10 Countries with the Best Quality Tap Water to Drink

Tap water quality
    1. Since the United States is such a big country with different climates and land use, water quality differs a lot. There are areas or States with increased levels of pesticides, sewage overflows and other problems, while some States have excellent water quality.

      So, to be objective, it is not possible to include the US as a whole on the list of countries with the best tap water quality. A separate article comparing water quality in different US States would be needed for this purpose.

    1. When doing the research for this article, I tried to dig for all possible information on water quality in these countries and mentions on forums from travelers about the taste of tap water and whether they have experienced some health problems.

      Finland has overall really great tap water quality, but I also found cases of communities going sick from sewage pollution and higher levels of eutrophication due to agriculture. The same story was with New Zealand and Canada. All of these countries have great tap water quality, but compared to those countries I have included on the list, they have more records of failures.
