An Aging Infrastructure
America’s water infrastructure is nearing the end of its useful life. Water systems are being flagged but high repair costs are preventing them from being fixed to meet EPA standards. Even if the water quality measured at the water treatment plants is good and meets regulations, the water can become contaminated on the journey it takes to your home after it leaves the facility. Millions of US homes are supplied water that passes through Lead pipes. As water travels through these pipes, Lead can enter the water before it reaches your faucet.
