Is your tap water safe to drink? 

Contaminated water has become an alarming issue not only in the United States but all over the world. 

Uncontaminated water is essential for human survival, healthy ecosystems, and sustainable development. 

The tap water we drink isn’t just coming from your local stream. It comes from lakes, rivers, reservoirs, or underground sources like aquifers. And any kind of water can become polluted with chemicals, regardless of its size or location. 

According to a new report by the non-profit Environmental Working Group, as many as 43 states expose millions of people to dangerous chemicals in their tap water. 

Residents of Newark, New Jersey recently faced a lead water crisis which put 30,000 residents at risk of lead poisoning. 

And in 2014, the city of Flint, Michigan, switched its water source to the Flint River which led to tainted drinking water that contained lead and other chemicals. 

Children are particularly vulnerable to unsafe tap water. Lead exposure in children can impact brain development and the nervous system. 

Water is such an important topic, and today, we explore how to make sure your tap water is safe to consume.
