Drinking Water Violations

Drinking Water Violations

According to records from 2015, the EPA  said that 21 million people were served by drinking water systems that didn’t meet standards based on rule violations.

 

The Safe Drinking Water Act regulates levels of contaminants in public water supplies. This graph tracks violations of the act over time. Spikes in violations often coincide with new, more stringent rules.

 

As you can see by this chart, adding stricter regulations to our drinking water doesn’t necessarily mean they will fix the issue right away. There seems to be a constant uprising with not only violations but also disinfecting by-products and PFAs, which are industrial chemicals.
