Many Families Do Not Have Access to Safe Drinking Water
Access to safe drinking water is a basic necessity for the health and wellbeing of all individuals, including children. However, there are many families in America who do not have access to safe drinking water due to contamination in their water supply. In some cases, this contamination may be due to aging infrastructure, agricultural runoff, or industrial pollution. Exposure to unsafe drinking water can have serious health consequences, including gastrointestinal illnesses, developmental delays, and even cancer. It is essential for policymakers to prioritize access to safe drinking water for all communities in the United States, particularly those who are most vulnerable.
