Global Water Pollution Has Reached Frightening High


Story at-a-glance -

  • Nearly 60 percent of the groundwater in the Indo-Gangetic Basin contains unsafe levels of arsenic. The water is not even usable for irrigation due to contamination levels and excess salinity
  • Pollution levels in rivers and lakes now put more than 320 million people in Asia, Africa and Latin America at risk for cholera and typhoid. Newer pathogens linked to neurological problems in children are also emerging
  • In the US, 12 to 18 million cases of water-borne diseases occur annually; 16.5 million Americans have detectable levels of PFAS in their water; 16 million have perchlorate in their water, and lead contamination is on the rise
