Abstract The incidence of improperly treated drinking water contaminated by bacteria, toxic chemicals, metals, and a possible wide range of other pollutants is reviewed in this pamphlet, which also emphasizes the role to be played by citizens in improving water quality. It is suggested that impure drinking water could become a major problem in the 1970's with the pressures of expanding population, economic growth, and new industrial processes.
