Contrary to the general belief that every thing in the US of A is the best might get a severe blow.According to a report by an independent environmental organisation Sierra Club to the tune of more than 111 million Americans get unsafe drinking water. They attribute it to the Environmental Protection Agency's policy to withhold Clean Water Act protections from headwater and seasonal streams.
Utah (79/2.0/90*), Colorado (68/3.6/83), Kentucky (55/3.1/77), Massachusetts (52/4.7/75), Maryland (59/3.7/70), Oklahoma (74/2.4/70), Connecticut (52/2.2/65), Pennsylvania (59/7.9/65), Alabama (61/2.6/58), New York (55/10.2/54) have been called the most affected states.
Addressing the gravity of the situation Navis Bermudez, author of the report said, 'The EPA's policy directive puts our drinking water sources at risk from waste disposal, sewage discharges, oil spills, development projects and other polluting activities. Congress should stop this destructive policy and ensure that the EPA protects our drinking water sources to the fullest extent of the law."
