Every year, millions of people in the U.S. are harmed by exposures to water pollution and air pollution. About 15 percent of the U.S. population rely on private wells as their source of drinking water, and about one in five of those wells contain one or more contaminants at a concentration greater than a human-health benchmark for drinking water. Air pollutants include particulate matter (dusts, fumes, mists, and smoke); gaseous pollutants (gases and vapors); and odors.
Industrial and mining activities pollute the land, water and air of private homeowners and create environmental nuisances that degrade quality of life, lower property values, and interfere with the quiet use and enjoyment of people’s property. Even some firefighting foams, often used in practice drills around airports and elsewhere, contain dangerous “forever chemicals” called per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), that can contaminate well water and have been linked with cancer and other health threats. Also, concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), industrial-sized livestock operations, produce tens of millions of gallons of liquid manure each year that can run offsite or otherwise get into streams and groundwater.
