Water pollution impacts all of us, but children and infants are especially at risk of exposure to contaminated water. Children drink more water per pound of body weight than adults, which means they also ingest higher amounts of any harmful chemicals that may be present in the water. In addition, when young children swim, they typically swallow more water than adults, and are therefore at greater risk of exposure to contaminants in lakes, rivers, and bays.
