From contaminated water in America’s schools and homes to an epidemic of lead poisoning and chemicals in tap water, the safety of tap water in America has never been discussed quite as openly as it is today. Fixing the broken water system in our country will cost millions of dollars, most which will fall upon home and business owners who will need to replace old pipes that are leeching lead. As reliable as tap water is, it often comes from mysterious sources and contains chemicals that people shouldn’t be putting into their bodies. How can the problem be addressed and how can American citizens protect themselves? This series is a must-read!

When the first reports of extreme levels of lead were found in the tap water in Flint, Michigan, it was easy to write it off as a terrible mistake in a single community. It was awful but at least Americans still felt confident that it was an isolated incident caused by lazy government officials who made a series of bad choices. As much as we wish that were true, contaminated tap water isn’t limited to one city in Michigan. High levels of lead and other toxic poisons have been found in all 50 states and in 2,000 American water systems. Yours could be one of them. A USA Today article said,
The water systems, which reported lead levels exceeding Environmental Protection Agency standards, collectively supply water to 6 million people. About 350 of those systems provide drinking water to schools or day cares. The USA TODAY NETWORK investigation also found at least 180 of the water systems failed to notify consumers about the high lead levels as federal rules require.
Even in small doses, lead poses a health threat. There is no amount deemed safe by the EPA, which means even the slightest trace can be harmful. Pregnant women and young children are most at risk. Lead can damage growing brains and cause reduced IQs, attention disorders and other problem behaviors. Infants fed formula made with contaminated tap water face significant risk. Adults can face kidney problems, high blood pressure and increased risks of cardiovascular deaths. How did this happen in our country? The USA Today article gives all the details, but it comes down to a lack of proper treatment and testing, in addition to decades-old lead pipes that feed water systems.
