US officials concealing reports that prove unsafe lead in drinking water in every city east of Mississippi River

Documents seen by The Guardian reveal questionable practices that mean people’s drinking water is at risk in ‘every major city east of the Mississippi’ for having unsafe levels of lead content.

This is utterly messed up! I’ve wondered about this for awhile and seems worst fears are now factual. I hate contributing to the already massive plastic bottle waste, not to mention spending money just to have “quality” drinking water, but I think we’ll play it safe by buying water by the gallon. The US is fastly starting to feel more 3rd world every year as things seem to regress rather than progress. Maddening! And the officials that have and have had previous knowledge about this, including the ineffective EPA, should be punished to the full extent of the law. IMHO, jailed without bail. People, we have to do something to make sure the powers that be have are accountable and honest to the people to whom they’ve sworn to serve anc protect : us citizens! But what exactly?
