10 U.S. cities with the worst drinking water
Unknown to most Americans, a surprising number of U.S. cities have drinking water with unhealthy levels of chemicals and contaminants.
The website 24/7 Wall St examined the quality of water supplies in most major America cities, using data collected from multiple sources for five years (ending in 2009) by Environmental Working Group (EWG), based in Washington, D.C. The fact that the data covered a half-decade is important because it shows that the presence of certain chemicals is persistent.
here is a shortened list..you can read the details here.
The worst water supplies in the country:
10. Jacksonville, Fla. (JEA)
9. San Diego (San Diego Water Department)
8. North Las Vegas (City of North Las Vegas Utilities Department)
7. Omaha (Metropolitan Utilities District)
6. Houston (City of Houston Public Works)
5. Reno (Truckee Meadows Water Authority)
4. Riverside County, Calif. (Eastern Municipal Water District)
3. Las Vegas (Las Vegas Valley Water District)
2. Riverside, Calif. (City of Riverside Public Utilities)
1. Pensacola, Fla. (Emerald Coast Water Utility)
