    Frequently Asked Questions about Drinking Water Massachusetts Water Resources Authority Because drinking water is a natural resource, its taste, color and odor can sometimes vary slightly from day to day, from town to town and from faucet to faucet. Many of those systems are old and dirty, and the new rules will require towns and cities to try harder to eliminate one of the last major sources of water pollution in Massachusetts.

    The groundwater inventory and mapping project was developed because Public Act (Michigan, Public Acts of ) required the Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) to create a "groundwater inventory and map" that includes eight specific products, a general requirement for a groundwater inventory, and a directive to make the map and inventory available to the public. The State of New York and the six New England States of Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island compose Segment 12 of this Atlas (fig. 1). The seven States have a total land area of about , square miles (table 1); all but a small area in southwestern New York has been glaciated.
