The Newwark Water Crisis

Poor water quality affects a large portion of the American population. In recent weeks, the city of Newark, NJ has become infamously plagued by contaminants. In particular, by lead toxins that are being secreted from the city’s poor infrastructure and excessive tainted dust and debris that makes its way into pipes, streams, and reservoirs.

Over the past year, at least 10% of nearly water samples tested, showed lead contamination. The level of lead, found in water, must comply with the federal action level of 15 parts per billion. According to state records, the water samples showed the lead levels at 26.7 parts per billion; almost 100 percent greater than the federal action level.

Lead can cause serious health problems if too much enters the body from drinking water or other sources, especially for pregnant women and children 6 years and younger. It can cause damage to the brain and kidneys, and can interfere with the production of red blood cells that carry oxygen to all parts of the body. The effects of lead can damage the brain and result in lowered IQ in children.

Lead dramatically impacts the alkalinity or acidity of the water available. This means it can leave the body predisposed to chronic illness and lower the immune system over time. A highly alkaline environment makes the organism a great host for cancer and other terminal diseases too. 

Because it is persistent in water sources, it can bioaccumulate quickly. This makes it very important to address as soon as it is recognized. While it is the most harmful to developing children and pregnant adults, it can also be imperative to full-grown individuals. These include manifesting itself in: cardiovascular effects, increased blood pressure and incidence of hypertension, decreased kidney function, and future reproductive problems (in both men and women). The EPA has written extensively on the detrimental impacts of this toxin on their website. 

So what can we do to combat this problem? Last month, New Jersey U.S. Senator and Democratic presidential candidate Cory Booker introduced legislation that would help get the lead out of drinking water. But this may not be enough. 

The problem stems from the inability of the state to provide equal access to resources that can purify and treat water properly. When this becomes an epidemic, the problem must be solved on an individual level instead.
