    Nickel can be commonly found in drinking water and groundwater, especially when the aquafiers are located near industrial properties.  The good news is Nickel is not considered to be dangerous and the element is considered nontoxic to the extent that the EPA National Interim Primary Drinking Water Regulations do not include a limit for this particular metal.

    Arsenic, Lead and even man-made medical chemicals can be found in drinking water.  The best way to find out what is in your drinking water is to check the annual report for your area.  You can find it by following this link:
