How can I reduce my exposure and my family’s exposure?

If your drinking water is contaminated with TCE, a filtration system on the main water supply to your house may be needed to remove TCE. If there is no water filter on your house, bottled water or some alternative water supply should be used for drinking and cooking to reduce TCE exposure. Without a whole house treatment system, you are still exposed when you use the water to shower and do laundry and dishes.
