Water Safety Concerns Following the Delaware River Toxic Spill

Thousands of gallons of a hazardous chemical spilled into the Delaware River. Although officials say Philadelphia’s water is safe to drink, experts disagree.

To gauge public concern, we surveyed Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware residents about how they feel about their drinking water and how capable they are to get through this crisis.

Our results indicate how unprepared many of them were.

Most of them have had access to bottled water, but a small few were unable to get any.

Hopefully, they had the proper water testing tools to ensure theirs was safe to drink.
