A brief history of Safe Drinking Water in the USA

Its been a long time since our Water was pure.  Starting in the 1760s in England, when manufacturing became mechanized.  Water, steam, wood, and coal powered machines forever changed a number of industries, and suddenly small towns became large cities as people flocked to factories to find work.

iPhones, self-driving cars, and designer clothing wouldn’t exist if not for the Industrial Revolution; historians use it as a time stamp for the transition between the early modern and modern periods.

As wealth increased nearly across the board, the economic standard of living rose dramatically along with the average life expectancy.

But the Industrial Revolution came at a cost to water quality and overall health.

How “safe” the Safe Drinking Water Act keeps our tap.

The Safe Drinking Water Act  (SDWA), originally passed by Congress in 1974 to protect public health by regulating the nation’s public drinking water supply, is the main federal law that ensures the quality of Americans’ drinking water.

Under SDWAEnvironmental Protection Agency (EPA) sets standards for drinking water quality and oversees the states, localities, and water suppliers who implement those standards.
