Water Insecurity. Re-print from BEMA Int from 2016. 6-Years and still an issue. Change the paradigm.

Another study or data gathering is not needed.   ACTIONS to solving the TRUE problem are.

A new study suggests a number of minority American neighborhoods are at risk of having

unhealthier water than their white counterparts.

……… The kitchen tap water in majority-black Wake County communities that depend on wells is more than 50 times more likely to contain coliform bacteriaand more than 700 times more likely to contain E. colithan the municipal water that’s available to majority-white neighborhoods just next door.

……Studies have shown that other majority-white Southern towns have refused to annex surrounding, majority-black neighborhoods and to extend municipal services to them.  The practice is so common that it has a name: underbounding.  Researchers have also documented towns underbounding Hispanic neighborhoods in Texas’ Lower Rio Grande and California’s Central Valley.
