Drink water in North Carolina is a particularly toxic source of lead.
It’s been the source of controversy in the state for decades, as North Carolina has a history of drinking contaminated water for decades.
A coalition of groups, including the North Carolina Department of Environmental Quality and the American Water Works Association, have been working to clean up the state’s water supply since the 1990s.
But the group says it’s still difficult to do.
“We know that we’ve got a lot of lead-contaminated water in our state.
It goes back decades.
And I think that people are really concerned,” said Dan Zieminski, a senior director at the American Beverage Association, which represents over 100 beverage makers.
“There’s so much water that goes in and out of our state that’s not being treated for lead.”
One of the most well-known sources of lead is the bottled water industry, with the beverage industry responsible for more than 70 percent of the country’s lead contamination.
North Carolina’s drinking water is a mix of municipal and private water sources, with over 50 percent of North Carolina residents having water with a lead content of more than 0.05 parts per billion.
But it’s not just the bottled-water industry that’s a concern.
It has been linked to health problems in children, pregnant women, and people with certain conditions, such as asthma.
“A lot of people have children with asthma and some children with cancer, and they’ve got lead in their drinking water,” said Zieminksi.
“People have to understand that this water is being used for drinking and bathing.”
North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory has said he wants to take action to clean water.
He announced in June that he’s opening a statewide task force to work on “the water crisis in North Carolinias waters,” and the state is working to improve drinking water quality by implementing an ambitious pilot program.
But Zieminsky worries that McCrories plan will be overshadowed by other issues.
“I’m not going to sit here and say that this is the only thing that is going to make a difference, but I think it’s going to have an impact on the way people think about this,” he said.
Zieminskis group is also concerned about how the state will respond to an increasing number of lawsuits against the bottled and canned water companies.
In 2016, more than 20,000 lawsuits were filed against the companies, including some against Nestle, which makes the drink as well as bottled water.
The company says it has spent more than $150 million defending the cases.
Ziominski says it would be “shocking” if the bottled drinking water companies didn’t take action against Nestlé and other companies that are suing.
“We have a problem with these companies, and I think people need to be aware of that and be aware that if you’re going to use bottled water, it has to be clean,” he told The Huffington, adding that people shouldn’t expect bottled water to have the same levels of contaminants as the municipal water supply.
