Safe drinking water is not just a concern to those who don’t have access to clean water in water-scarce parts of the world; it has become the concern of those with access to clean water but who are also in close proximity to industrial plants which leave them vulnerable to the effects of chemical spills. From West Virginia, where such a spill is still under investigation, to Brisbane, Australia, where concerns for microbes associated with human infections have been found in the drinking water, safe water has become a global concern. Several articles have been published recently. The Examiner.com ran both an article and several videos, which also includes a focus on pharmaceuticals and pesticides in the water; NYC water towers are also reviewed.
