In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've
provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water MCLs are set as
close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or
expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
