America’s ‘Invisible Water Crisis’: 40% of Philadelphia Can’t Pay Water Bills

There's a “invisible water crisis” happening across the United States — but nobody is talking about it.

Water may be the single most important thing necessary for life, but that doesn't mean the government always gets it right.

But Flint isn't the only city facing major water issues. Their issues may soon spring up across the county. Not only are politicians refusing to fund the necessary improvements needed to keep water systems up-to-date, they're also allowing exorbitant fees that leave many unable to pay for the utility.
