Having access to a clean drinking water supply and sanitation is considered a basic need. In the U.S., issues such as water scarcity, pollution, lack of investment, and water prices are concerning, especially as climate change has led to increased droughts and floods. Concerns about drinking water has increased in the United States as environmental regulations have been rolled back under President Donald Trump. Income and race disparities are also evident in water pollution concerns as poor and minority groups tend to be more heavily impacted by environmental pollution. The widely discussed case of contaminated drinking water in Flint, Michigan has also heightened the issue of drinking water pollution among the general public.
