Clean Water Crisis/Scarcity For decades, providing clean water to the masses has been a goal. Even with the “Millennium Declaration”, a goal proposed by the United Nations to provide clean water sources to everyone in the world by 2020, many people will go without clean water supplies. Can you imagine living in a region where there are struggles to get a glass of clean water. It seems so distant to us living in modern industrialized America, yet this concept is completely taken for granted in everyday life. We simply forget the means as to how we have gotten this necessity of life delivered to our kitchen sink. This is nonetheless relevant in today’s world. Unless you are one of the unfortunate countries or regions in which there is limited supplies of water and the water that is present is stagnant or so contaminated with bacteria and other minerals that it literally makes you sick from dysentery by simply drinking one glass. Letsfirst look at the public water supply in area's with scarce resources. With a population of well over 120 million people less than 30% of Nigeria has access to safe drinking water(Nigeria). Ingestion of unsafe drinking water can result in spreadable disease. In fact, in India, 21% of all spreadable disease is due to a lack of safe water, and diarrhea alone causes more than 1,600 deaths daily(India). Worldwide 1 out of every 4 deaths under the age of 5 is due to a water-related disease (water). The niger river which once flowed freely though Africa has been being used to produce hydro-electric power out of the Akosombodam. According to BBC news, Nigeria is dependent on this river and the river is now facing environmental catastrophe as a result of pollution". The United States is affected much less than other parts of the world at this time. Although if we do not change something soon we may end up like some of the worlds less fortunate counties. California has been in a drought since 2006. Our own Lexington reservoir is down
I continue to be concerned about the cleanliness of our water. Clean water is a necessity to the entire community.
Our efforts to reduce water pollution in the Chesapeake Bay, benefits not just the Bay residents and fishermen, but all of our creeks and rivers. The reason that we continue to have these problems is due to the runoffs from construction sites, waste from the farms located near the shorelines, and dumping of trash by local citizens. The chemicals and pollutants found in the soil is….
The Right to Access Clean Water

Keep Our Water Clean: Clean Water Act
The Clean Water Act has made advances to our society that have helped
our environment to flourish with life. The objective of the Act when it was
enacted in 1972 was to restore and maintain the chemical, physical, and
biological integrity of the Nation's water. This objective was accompanied by
other statutory goals to eliminate the discharge of pollutants into waters used
by boats by 1985 and to attain waters deemed "fishable or swimmable" by 1983. So
In today’s world, one of the most basic problems facing our society is the absence of clean water that we use and drink in daily life. The importance of clean water is self-explanatory. In spite of the fact that 70% of the earth’s surface is covered by water, there is only 2.53%of fresh water that we can actually use. For the only 2.53% of fresh water, some is not safe and clean to use and it is harmful to human body. Polluted water is a big risk to our health….
