Nationwide, 77 million people were found to be exposed to unsafe water.
A Portland-based teenager is gaining attention all across the country because of an experiment that began in the classroom. The Jesuit High School senior has figured out a new way to create fresh water from sea water.
A team led by researchers at Rutgers University developed tiny, glowing crystals that are designed to detect and capture heavy-metal toxins, such as lead and mercury, in drinking waters.
An Arizona startup by the name of Zero Mass Water is focused on building solar-powered water production systems that will gather water vapor from hot air. The said solar panel can generate water for a family of four.

After examining precipitation and groundwater data from wells scattered across the tropics, researchers discovered these freshwater resources may be more resilient to climate change than previously thought, and may even benefit from fewer but more intense rainfall patterns.
Yale researchers have confirmed that removing natural gas from deep underground using hydraulic fracturing methods does not contaminate drinking water, although they also said that "geology across the country is very different."
Pharmaceuticals that pass through sewage treatment plants contaminate drinking water sources. Scientists from the American Chemical Society have recently developed a way to re-design chemical structures of medicines so that they can easily biodegrade instead.
Home owners in central Florida want to save water but also feel pressure to meet Home Owner's Association regulations. Here's a look at how much drinking water is used.
