How Polluted is U.S. Drinking Water?

ImageSome Americans do not know the quality of the water that they are drinking. Generally, our tap water is safe. However, some communities have violated health regulations. We do not realize how much we actually rely on water. It is used in food we eat, clothes we wear, cars we drive, and more. Yet, in some parts of the country the water is still not safe to drink. They found cancer causing chemicals in water in Africa and they have found other bad things in water as well. Some restrictions have been placed on the usage of water. However, contaminates from the ground have leaked into the water. There are places in the U.S. that have contaminated water as well and the EPA is doing there best to solve this problem.
