Related to the current issue, Consumer Reports has created a separate web site “Water Safety & Quality Guide.”  The description on the web site reads as follows: “Consumer Reports is investigating the state of the nation’s drinking water, in a year-long effort called America’s Water Crisis.  The project, conducted in partnership with the Guardian US, covers a range of topics, including inequities in access to affordable and safe public water supplies as well as issues of safety and sustainability raised by American’s reliance on bottled water as an alternative.”
