The Safe Drinking Water Act is a law, which demands that safe drinking water is provided to the citizens of the U.S. Over the past five years, more than 49 million people in the U.S. have been victims of contaminated water.
More than 20% of U.S. water treatment systems were found to have missed the mark on providing safe water to Americans.
Contamination that has been found in the U.S. water supply includes:
Dangerous amounts of sewage bacteria has also been found in American drinking water.
Responsibility for Safe Water in the U.S.
The EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) is responsible for enforcing the safe drinking water laws, however, those companies who were found to be providing the U.S. with unsafe drinking water were often never even fined or punished by any state or federal officials.
Every year, millions of American contrive illnesses that are directly linked to the ingestion of unsafe drinking water. The EPA claims that “…clean drinking water is top-priority.” However, it has been necessary for this dirty drinking water matter to go before the State Environment and Public Works Committee in order to question a high-ranking EPA official regarding this apparent travesty that has occurred with the population of American citizens being delivered unsafe tap water to their homes and businesses.
Also important to note is that a recent study proved that an unhealthy percentage of bottled water companies have been performing zero additional purification methods to the tap water that they are bottling and selling across the U.S. Without a water purification system from Mirex AquaPure Solutions, how can you be sure that you are not drinking dangerously contaminated water?
Only just this year, EPA administrator, Lisa Jackson, has declared a wide-ranging Clean Water Act overhaul for the regulation of the entry of pollution into U.S. waterways. How many years have we been in need of this protection?
How soon can we feel safe about our drinking water, now knowing that it is not currently and has not been safe to drink for an unmeasured amount of time. Call Mirex AquaPure Solutions today for safe drinking water you can feel good about.
Every State in America Has Contaminated Drinking Water
In portions of every single state in the U.S.A., water safety laws have been discovered to have been violated. One example of this was in Ramsey, New Jersey where the water supply was found to be contaminated with arsenic as well as tetrachloroethylene, which is a dry cleaning solution that has already been linked to the spread of cancer.
In the state of New York alone, as many as 205 water companies have been discovered breaking the law by delivering contaminated water to the residents of New York, U.S.A.
Enforcing the Safe Drinking Water Act has been low on the federal priority list. Because of this, the majority of the companies who were found to have been providing Americans with dangerously contaminated drinking water were never even punished or fined in any way.
One justification for the failure to enforce clean drinking water laws that the EPA has portrayed is that they felt that fining these companies might end up in higher taxes for the public to pay. Did the public ever get to choose whether or not they would be willing to pay extra for safe and clean drinking water?
University of Michigan Law School professor, Mr. Uhlmann explained that the problem with the reluctance of the EPA to fine companies for delivering dangerous drinking water to the public was that many of the water companies in this system would not begin to ensure that the drinking water is safe until they were forced to do so.
A few current and former EPA professionals were willing to be interviewed by the New York Times and they claimed to have attempted to get the EPA executives to consider bringing cases against water companies for providing Americans with dirty, contaminated drinking water, but that they were always shut down immediately in their attempts.
It has been difficult to site specifically how many illnesses in the United States have actually been caused by the contamination of our drinking water because of the fact that many of the illnesses that develop, such as cancer, take years to appear as a result.
Millions of Americans Found Sick Due to Dirty Drinking Water
Research from scientists does, however, suggest that just under 20 million Americans get sick every year from bacteria, parasites and viruses that are found in U.S. drinking water.
Both breast cancer and prostate cancer have specifically been tied as potential results from drinking contaminated water in the U.S.
The EPA themselves reported that more than 3 million Americans have been exposed to harmful drinking water and that much of this water contained more than 2,000 times the legal limit for radium.
State regulators have used some informal methods, such as technical assistance to attempt to reduce the amount of contaminated drinking water that companies are serving Americans, however, an extremely low percentage of those found to be violating the drinking water laws were punished.
Even after receiving assistance from the EPA, many of these companies failed to comply with safe drinking water standards and laws and continued to deliver contaminated tap water to the citizens of the U.S.
Mid-level EPA regulators who chose to remain anonymous for fear of losing their jobs, did tell the New York Times reporters that they are skeptical that any boasts about changes coming were possibly going to occur because apparently, the EPA is not creating any level of accountability and many believe that means that nothing is going to change.
