The federal government passed regulations to promote clean drinking water at schools, but many education districts still deserve an "F" for their performance. A regulation passed last year, which must be implemented by July, required "free drinking water at breakfast,” reported EdSource, an education policy group.
A new study conducted by researchers at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Adelaide, Australia, has produced the strongest evidence yet that fluoride in drinking water provides dental health benefits to adults, even those who had not received fluoridated drinking water as children.
A future warmer climate will produce different effects in different lakes. Researchers from Lund University in Sweden have now been able to explain that the effects of climate change depend on what organisms are dominant in the lake. Algal blooms will increase, especially of toxic blue-green algae.
The state Court of Appeals has ruled against the city of Albuquerque and Bernalillo County in a dispute over diverting water from the Rio Grande to supply drinking water for the metropolitan area.
The Environmental Protection Agency was recently reprimanded for its regulation of drinking water and the selection process it uses to select candidates for contaminant regulation. On the bright side, the agency is trying to ensure rural water systems pass muster.
An innovative investment strategy is providing nearly $230 million more for low-interest loans and grants for local drinking water and wastewater projects. The state Environmental Facilities Corp. saved money over the last four years by more aggressively investing revenue from fees and by tweaking management practices.

The Obama administration announced on Wednesday that it planned to regulate toxic substances in drinking water more strictly and would issue the first limits ever on perchlorate, a dangerous chemical found in rocket fuel that has seeped into groundwater in at least 400 locations.
In a remarkable turnabout, federal health officials say many Americans are now getting too much fluoride because of its presence not just in drinking water but in toothpaste, mouthwash and other products, and it's causing splotches on children's teeth and perhaps more serious problems. The U.S.

A team of researchers led by Maryse Bouchard, adjunct professor at the Center for Interdisciplinary Research in Biology, Health, Environment and Society (CINBIOSE) of the Université du Québec à Montréal and a researcher at Sainte-Justine University Hospital, and Donna Mergler, professor emerita in the Department of Biological Sciences and a member of CINBIOSE, recent
March 30, 2010--Environmental regulators will measure levels of plastic chemical in water supply (Los Angeles Times)
The Environmental Protection Agency said Monday it will investigate the impact of the chemical Bisphenol-A on the U.S. water supply and other parts of the environment. Federal regulators have been ramping up their scrutiny of the controversial plastic-hardener at the behest of scientists and activists who say it can interfere with infant growth and development.
