Screenshot
Readers interested in learning more about water safety and policy in the United States may want to check out the National Drinking Water Alliance (NDWA). This network of organizations aims to "ensure that all children in the U.S. can drink safe water in the places where they live, learn and play" and describes its website as "the nationwide clearinghouse for essential drinking water research and resources." Visitors will find numerous resources related to drinking water access and consumption, categorized by resource type and organized by age group. These include bibliographies of peer-reviewed studies and government reports and a database of policy resources, many of which include links to further information. Under the safety tab, readers will find a collection of guides, websites, reports, and more, as well as an interactive water safety map depicting "media reports of tap water contamination since 2015 and state actions for school tap water safety." Furthermore, this project also includes resources related to water access for schools and communities and a variety of strategies and outreach materials for education about drinking water. Formed in 2015, the NDWA is coordinated by the Nutrition Policy Institute, part of the Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources at the University of California-Extension.
