Water comes into my basement. Do I need to worry about 1,4-dioxane in the water?

Water coming into basements may come from several things. It is common for surface water, such as rain or snow melt, to enter basements. Surface water is not likely to be contaminated with 1,4-dioxane. If you live in an area with a high water table, groundwater may seep into your basement. Research has not been done to determine what risk there might be in this situation.
