Industrial chemicals, pesticides, fertilizers, lead from water supply pipes, water disinfection by-products, and pathogens from human and animal waste can all end up in drinking water, with adverse health outcomes ranging from acute diarrheal disease to long-term effects including neurological, developmental, and reproductive effects and even cancer.
