In the 21st century, water insecurity and inadequate sanitation are more commonplace in the U.S. than we would have ever imagined. Water activists, impacted residents, scholars and legal advocates in Michigan have been working for more than two decades to bring attention and solutions to local, state, national and global struggles to ensure that all people have access to affordable, safe, and clean residential water and sanitation options.
In our years of work and research, we have drafted and aggregated information that may be useful to others seeking to learn more about water affordability, health metrics and public health, human rights, lead levels and infrastructure, and legal issues that affect legislative, utility, and public opinion outcomes for this national crisis.
