Today at least 4 million households have children living in them that are being exposed to high levels of lead. There are approximately half a million U.S. children ages 1-5 with blood lead levels above 5 micro-grams per deciliter (µg/dL), the reference level at which CDC recommends public health actions be initiated.”

The Myths: Public Water

Public water is safe. Public water is regularly tested. Public water is regularly treated. False. False. False.

The Flint, Michigan (#flintmichigan) public water crisis has all the hype right now, but this isn’t the first and may not be the last case where people are misled into drinking tainted water. The problems in Michigan all started when a decision was made to switch the public water source from the Great Lakes to the Flint River to save money. The Flint Reservoir for decades served as a dumping ground for sludge and crude. Consumers of public water suffered illness, hair loss, skin irritation, and several children were diagnosed with lead poisoning before the problem was addressed.

It is up to the public to protect their households and the first step to preventing a crisis like Flint is to test your water. Public water is not tested beyond the water treatment center, and the mandatory public water testing does not include all the harmful contaminants that pose a threat to the people using the water. Even water that is “safe” to drink, may still be exposed and contaminated in distribution to your household.
