Your Water Quality
The National Drinking Water Database has found over 300 pollutants in the tap water. Unfortunately, the government has not set a single new drinking water standard since 2001. Furthermore, water utilities spend 19 times more on water treatment chemicals every year than the federal government invests in protecting lakes and rivers from pollution in the first place. For that reason, the government should establish new safety standards, set priorities for pollution prevention projects, and tell consumers about the full range of pollutants in their water.
