Places in the US that don’t have access to clean water

: The United States is home to some of the most advanced infrastructure in the world. But many communities around the country don’t benefit from it, leaving millions of Americans with substandard or non-existent water systems. This exposes people to unsafe water contaminated by toxins, viruses or bacteria.

American water crisis

The American Society of Civil Engineers evaluated the safety and quality of the U.S. drinking water system and gave it a “D” grade. While safe water seems like a basic human right, your water quality as an American often depends on race, wealth and location. Small, poor rural communities and urban areas that are predominantly home to minorities are often neglected by state and federal governments. In fact, millions of Americans from coast to coast don’t have access to clean water. Experts believe it would cost the U.S. $1 trillion just to maintain our drinking water system for the next 25 years, according to CNN.
