#waterroundup for May 25th, 2018

If you haven't heard, the EPA held a big event about water quality earlier this week, so we took a look at exactly what that meant, and what it means now that water is political.
The EPA hearing was definitely the big water news of the week, so the Washington Post put together some interesting opinions on just what effect the agency’s current head is having, and how that could affect water quality.
The Intercept took a deep look at impact that handing control of water infrastructure over to private companies has had. Sneak peak: it’s not good. They trace crises like Flint’s directly to these private companies.
Water isn’t just a major issue here, but also around the world too. Cape Town is facing a critical point in water security, so they’re beginning to resort to new measures to make up the shortfall.
Another week, another water trend. This time, people are flocking to salt water for its purported health benefits, but does it really do you anything good?
