By 2030 SDG 6, Clean Water and Sanitation aim to ensure the availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all. This includes ensuring access to safe drinking water, improving water quality and water use efficiency, and protecting and restoring freshwater ecosystems. More than 1 million people in the U.S. lack consistent access to safe drinking water, a bathroom, and hot and cold running water, and more than 500,000 people experiencing homelessness face challenges with consistent access. In the U.S., the Clean Water Act (CWA) and the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) regulate the use, treatment, and monitoring of the water sources that provide tap water in our homes, schools, and communities. The United Nations has defined 8 Targets and 11 Indicators to track progress towards reaching the Sustainable Development Goal of Clean Water and Sanitation by 2030. The data below takes a look at key indicators in the U.S. related to Safe Drinking Water Act violations, access to sanitation facilities like toilets, and more through the lens of government and social sector data.
