504    Includes bibliographical references (pages 273-318) and 
520    "New York Times bestselling author Seth M. Siegel shows 
       how our drinking water got contaminated, what it may be 
       doing to us, and what we must do to make it safe. If you 
       thought America's drinking water problems started and 
       ended in Flint, Michigan, think again. From big cities and
       suburbs to the rural heartland, chemicals linked to cancer,
       heart disease, obesity, birth defects, and lowered IQ 
       routinely spill from our taps. Many are to blame: the EPA,
       Congress, a bipartisan coalition of powerful governors and
       mayors, chemical companies, and drinking water utilities -
       - even NASA and the Pentagon. Meanwhile, the bottled water
       industry has been fanning our fears about tap water, but 
       bottled water is often no safer. The tragedy is that 
       existing technologies could launch a new age of clean, 
       healthy, and safe tap water for only a few dollars a week 
       per person. Scrupulously researched, Troubled Water is 
       full of shocking stories about contaminated water found 
       throughout the country and about the everyday heroes who 
       have successfully forced changes in the quality and safety
       of our drinking water. And it concludes with what America 
       must do to reverse decades of neglect and play-it-safe 
       inaction by government at all levels in order to keep our 
       most precious resource safe"--|cProvided by publisher.
