After Flint, More than Three-Quarters of Americans Concerned About Water Contamination in Low Income Communities
According to a Feb. 25 poll conducted by the Kaiser Health Policy News Index, the safety of the nation's water supply is causing concern in a significant number of Americans. While nearly half (47 percent) of Americans are worried about the safety of the water supply in their own communities, 77 percent are equally concerned about the water supply in low-income communities, like Flint. Forty percent are "very concerned" about low income communities having access to a safe water supply.
Nearly two-thirds, or 64 percent, of the public is paying close attention to the recent water crisis in Flint, Mich. Click here to view CSG's recent, related blog post on the status of the nation's water infrastructure and how this affects states.
