Municipal water -no: Municipal (city or other government) authorities, by law, regularly monitor water supplies for safety. If you're on ordinary tap water, it is safe. If you use a well or another kind of water supply, contact your local water board for testing recommendations.

Drinking water: Tap water in most communities in the US is filtered, tested and there are reports on dissolved metals and chemicals. You can certainly pay third parties to give you reports on your water, but there are other ways to promote your children's health.
