How to Remove Non-Ferrous Metal Contamination from Your Water Sources
A new report from the Environmental Working Group (EWG) says the contamination of drinking water supplies is an ongoing problem.
The group’s report found that water quality in more than 60 states was not improving.
The report found the problem is particularly bad in the West and Northeast.
“We are in the midst of a massive water crisis, the most severe in our nation’s history, with more than a billion Americans without drinking water,” the report’s authors wrote.
“We need to focus on the people who are most affected, not on the corporations and water utilities that profit from the problem.”
The EWG report came out in partnership with the American Water Works Association (AWWA), which represents water utilities across the country.
The water industry is expected to spend more than $500 million on bottled water, according to the AP.
The study found water quality is improving in every state, but only in the South.
The average water quality index in the U.S. is 3.6, down from 4.9 in 2016.
The index is measured by measuring levels of lead, arsenic, copper, and other metals, as well as the concentration of nitrates, nitrates and other solvents.
The EWGs report found most of the water problems in the United States are concentrated in the Midwest and Southwest, where water utilities have historically been the largest users of groundwater.
The AP reports that many states are struggling with rising water bills.
In many states, consumers are paying as much as 50% more for their water than they did a decade ago, according the AP, which noted that many of the states that are grappling with water problems are among the poorest in the country, and many rely on fossil fuels.
The EWSG report also found that the most contaminated drinking water sources in the US include the Chesapeake Bay, Great Lakes, and rivers, and lakes.
The Chesapeake and Great Lakes are the nation’s largest source of drinking-water supplies, with nearly 90 million people consuming water from the waters.
It is estimated that drinking water quality levels in the Chesham Bay region have declined from 6.6 parts per billion (ppb) in 2015 to 5.6 ppb in 2017.
The Great Lakes have been the source of many water-related water-safety concerns in recent years, including a 2015 report by the EPA that found that lead contamination in the lake’s drinking water was increasing.
