The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has found that lead-contaminated water supplies are on the rise in the U.S. and around the world.
The agency’s finding comes as the agency is also trying to figure out how to clean up contaminated water systems.
It also comes as a new water crisis hits California, which is already dealing with the effects of the Flint water crisis.
The EPA announced Friday that it has detected elevated levels of lead and cadmium in the blood of people who drank Flint water and that there are elevated levels in the water system of some residents of other parts of the country.
The latest findings come after months of testing by the agency, and it is the latest in a series of reports that show lead in water is a health threat.
EPA has already started to address lead-tainted water in the Flint, Michigan, city.
It found that the city’s water had high levels of two contaminants that can cause elevated lead levels in children.
The lead and arsenic levels in Flint’s water were much higher than what federal health officials had previously measured in drinking water, which was more than 10 times the EPA’s limit for drinking water.
Lead and arsenic are contaminants that have been linked to birth defects, learning disabilities, and brain damage.
The water in Flint was tested for the two contaminants, and officials have said the tests showed lead levels were much lower than the federal limit.
The state is also now testing the water of Flint residents in other cities, and in some cases, it is finding elevated levels.
Officials say they are taking steps to address the lead contamination, including working with the city of Flint to add more filters and replacing pipes that are not properly tested.
But it’s unclear how much action the state can take without more testing.
The State of Michigan says it is in the process of testing all the water that’s in its systems and will do so this week.
The Flint water is now being tested for lead, cadmide, and arsenic.
Some people have complained that the state is not providing them with adequate water filters, and there is no clear plan to address those concerns.
The Environmental Working Group (EWG) and other groups have been calling on the state to investigate what happened and provide more details.
The groups say that without additional testing, Flint residents could end up with even higher lead levels than they have been finding.
EPA officials say they have begun to investigate.
The New York Times reports that officials are looking into whether some people who drink water in some of the other cities in the state are at higher risk for exposure to the two pollutants.
In New York City, there are also reports that the number of people with elevated levels has been increasing.
The governor has ordered an investigation into the lead problem in the city.
EPA spokeswoman Andrea Rinaldi says the agency has already begun to address some of those concerns and that the agency will be conducting more testing in the coming days.
The AP reports that one of the EPA findings is that lead levels are up in some communities.
In addition to the water crisis in Flint, EPA says it has also been investigating the problem of lead contamination in drinking wells in several states.
EPA is also investigating a chemical spill that occurred in the Mississippi River last year that contaminated a small number of drinking wells.
The spill is still being investigated.
