Researchers funded by the NIEHS Superfund Research Program (SRP) describe reasons for water contamination disparities, identify current private well disparities, and review how community engagement and interventions like pitcher filters can help protect marginalized communities.

“Marginalized communities face greater technical and financial challenges in maintaining water quality that meets safety standards,” said Clare Pace, Ph.D., of the University of California, Berkeley SRP Center.
