Century-old pipe break points to national problem

U.S. water infrastructure increasingly unreliable

The recent incident in LA highlights a nation wide problem of old deteriorating water infrastructure. The U.S. has been under investing in water infrastructure for the last 60 years. The EPA estimates that there is over $1 trillion of needed water infrastructure repairs right now. Over the decade to come potable water supply in the U.S. will become increasingly unreliable. Leaks in old water mains will add hazardous bacteria and other pollutants regardless of the cleanliness of the source of the water. Our technology and other water purification technologies will be needed in homes to purify water tap water before it will be safe to drink. These technologies will allow people to take their health and safety into their own hands.
