Everyone is entitled to have clean, safe water. Water contamination occurs when water is made unsafe for humans, animals, or plants. No matter where drinking water comes from, it can become contaminated. Sometimes, it’s necessary to pursue legal means to get it cleaned up again. That’s where we can help.
1-800-LAW-FIRM is an advocate and leader in the fight to protect the public from contaminated drinking water. A recent study of public water supplies found unsafe levels of chemicals in the water consumed every day by 6 million people. Unfortunately, that number represents only the tip of the iceberg when you factor in the number of people whose water was not tested as part of the study, including those who consume contaminated water from private wells, or people whose water is at risk of being contaminated.
The fact is, many in the U.S. assume their drinking water is safe only to learn later they have been consuming toxic chemicals due to inadequate pollution controls and hazardous waste disposal practices. The results for a community like Flint, Michigan, for example, where residents were told their water was safe even after it was knowingly switched to an unsafe source, have been devastating. In other communities, like Hoosick Falls, New York, residents only recently learned that they have been consuming a tasteless, odorless toxic chemical for decades.
