Not one chemical has been added to the list of those regulated by the Safe Drinking Water Act since 2000. Many of the standards have not been updated since the 1980s. Some remain essentially unchanged since the 1974 law was passed.

More than 62 million Americans have been exposed since 2004 to drinking water that did not meet at least one commonly used government health guideline intended to help protect people from cancer or serious disease, according to an analysis by The New York Times.

Mercury in the Fish

A U.S. Geological Survey showed 100 percent of the fish tested were contaminated with mercury. More than 25 percent were contaminated at levels higher than the threshold set for human consumption.

Mercury is a neurotoxin that builds in the food chain at ever higher concentrations in predators such as large fish and humans. It can have severe effects on anyone, but is especially damaging to the developing nervous systems of fetuses and children. The pollutant enters the environment almost entirely as atmospheric emissions from industrial processes, principally the burning of coal. It then spreads and settles, eventually concentrating in rivers, lakes and oceans, where it enters the food chain. 

Recent rules have been enacted to reduce contamination from coal mining.

20% of Treatment Systems Violated Key Safe Drinking Water Act Provisions.

A separate study of federal data by the New York Times reports that more than 20 percent of the water treatment systems in the US have violated key provisions of the Safe Drinking Water Act over the last five years.  eThat law requires communities to deliver safe tap water to residents. But since 2004, the water delivered to more than 49 million people has contained illegal concentrations of chemicals like arsenic or radioactive substances like uranium.
