New York City’s water treatment plants are among the world’s best, but many residents still struggle to access safe drinking water.
New York’s water infrastructure was the subject of an extensive report released today by Water Watch, a non-profit environmental advocacy organization.
The report details how many people in the United States have died due to water pollution and how the nation’s water supply is in desperate need of improvement.
The problem of lead contamination is particularly serious, the report says.
Lead is a toxic metal that can cause kidney damage, lead poisoning and birth defects.
Lead contamination can lead to kidney failure, birth defects, and increased risk of kidney cancer.
The study found that water treatment facilities across the country are failing to protect the public from lead and other contaminants.
According to the report, the average treatment plant has about 2,000 lead service lines and 2,400 lead service pipes, but water treatment workers in more than 80 percent of those facilities do not have any lead service or service lines, and water treatment crews are not trained to properly use these lines and pipes.
The city’s water system also lacks effective and comprehensive lead protection and testing.
The lead contamination problem affects more than 3.5 million people across the United Stated.
About half of the people in New York County live in communities that have low levels of lead exposure, according to the state Department of Health.
The state Department is also trying to address the issue by issuing more stringent testing requirements and building more lead-testing and remediation facilities.
New Yorkers are the highest-risk population in New Jersey and the most at risk for lead poisoning, according the report.
The United States spends about $50 billion annually on water infrastructure.
The average cost of water treatment and filtration services in New England is about $4,400 per person.
The amount of lead in water is high in the Northeast, and the amount of water that people in poorer parts of the country have to drink is even higher.
Lead poisoning affects children as young as two, as young children are at greater risk, and can affect people of color, the elderly, and those with disabilities.
The water that New York residents are drinking is also high in lead.
Lead can be found in lead pipes in a variety of ways, but one of the most common types of lead is found in pipes that have been treated with chemicals known as PFCs, which are used to treat oil and gas pipelines.
PFC chemicals can be toxic to children, pregnant women, and people with disabilities, as well as people with pre-existing medical conditions, according an April 2016 study by the Center for Public Integrity.
Pfc chemicals can also be dangerous to pregnant women and their fetuses.
According a 2015 report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, lead is one of 10 chemicals that is used in drinking water systems in the U.S. that are linked to an increased risk for miscarriage and premature birth, including lead and arsenic.
Lead pipes are also found in many homes in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and New York.
People in the New York Metropolitan area are also disproportionately affected by the problem of high lead levels in their water supply.
Nearly 50 percent of New York homes in the metro area have high levels of elevated lead in their drinking water, and more than 70 percent of households in the metropolitan area have elevated lead levels.
In the boroughs of Staten Island, Brooklyn, and Queens, where most of the lead contamination occurs, the rate of elevated levels of high-lead-contaminated water is about six times higher than in other areas.
New Jersey is the only state in the nation with no mandatory lead service testing requirements for the water that we drink.
New Hampshire requires that residents in low-income communities who use tap water and tap water treatment have to have a test within 24 hours of a leak, but people living in higher-income households have a maximum of two weeks to take the test.
The Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) did not respond to requests for comment about the report on lead poisoning.
The State Department of Water Resources did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
New England has one of New England’s lowest rates of lead poisoning for any age group.
However, water poisoning can have long-term health effects, including kidney damage and birth abnormalities.
The New York State Department on Thursday proposed a plan to build a $50 million water treatment facility in the region.
The plan includes more than 4,500 water lines and 10,000 pipes.
It also calls for a $40 million investment in the state’s water and wastewater systems to provide a water system that is safe for residents and businesses, as required by federal regulations.
The facility would be funded with a combination of federal and state funds.
The Governor of New Jersey has not yet released a budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1, but Governor Chris Christie has indicated he is likely to sign a bill to begin construction of the
