Water supplies are wide open to the threat of deliberate contamination
Water is distributed through pipelines and stored in tanks, all of which are vulnerable to deliberate or natural contamination. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), water distribution systems in the US alone span almost 1 million miles of physical infrastructure where even natural ‘wear and tear’ can pose intermittent or persistent risks to health.
A recent incident of water contamination in the UK affected 300,000 homes after Cryptosporidium was found in the water supply, inconveniencing residents and businesses, and risking serious health issues and complications for the vulnerable.
