    From NYS DOH, “While there is no drinking water standard for sodium, state and federal agencies recommend sodium levels in water not exceed 20 milligrams per liter (mg/L) for people on very low sodium diets and 270 mg/L for people on moderately restricted sodium diets. Most of the salt we consume comes from food. In fact, according to the US Department of Health and Human Services, most people get about 3,400 milligrams per day from the food they eat.
