    Until recently, when most Americans heard about issues surrounding clean drinking water, they likely thought about developing-nations.  Flint reminds us, this is unfortunately not the case.  In fact, there are certain parts of the U.S. along with regions across the world that have been devastated by this deadly issue.  The crisis in Flint, Michigan is a wake up call regarding the importance of access to clean drinking water.

    Flint was distressing to hear about. If water quality can deteriorate that much in a major American city, shouldn’t we all be concerned?

    Water in places like DC is routinely tested and it is not unheard of to get an advisory to not drink the water.

    there’s a lot of chlorine 3.2ppm to a EPA limit of 4ppm. You can certainly smell it.
