WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE




But not a drop to drink in the capital of the free world. Clean water, pillar of civilization, is becoming ever more scarce due to a combination of corruption, bureaucratic ineptitude and neoliberal acrimony for investments in critical public infrastructures.

The DC Water and Sewer Authority is warning that children under the age of 6 and pregnant women should not drink the water. In lieu of clean water, DC WASA is offering children under the age of 6 and pregnant women free tests for lead poisoning. So I guess it evens out, more or less.
