The world has a problem with pollution and it has made its way into our drinking water. It used to be pollution from the effects of Industrial pollution but now we have a new concern, tiny amounts of chemicals which have leached into our drinking water supply from pharmaceuticals, fertilizers and day to day contaminants. In the U.S. the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), which regulates the nations drinking water, has identified 126 substances (and counting) which it calls “contaminants of emerging concern” (CECs) or “emerging contaminants.”The chemicals found in the world’s drinking water include those used in industrial production, pharmaceutical ingredients, illicit drugs, and numerous substances of modern life with largely unknown health effects. Officials don’t know exactly how wide spread these contaminants are and it doesn’t know what human health impacts they have. For many of the substances, no safe level for human consumption has been set, because the effects haven’t been studied in depth.
We should all take note of this new and rising concern which will have lasting effects on our drinking water supply. The world has less than 2.5% of all its water storage as freshwater and it makes up a very small fraction of all water on the planet. While nearly 70 percent of the world is covered by water, only 2.5 percent of it is fresh. The rest is contaminated with salt which is ocean-based. Even then, just 1 percent of our freshwater is easily accessible, with much of it trapped in glaciers and snowfields.
