Dangerous Water
Reverse osmosis solution

As many as 26 cities, towns and villages in the state have drinking water with high levels of uranium, which could increase the risk of kidney failure and cancer.

According to Nebraska Health and Human Services, the Environmental Protection Agency standard for uranium is 30 parts per billion, based on consuming two liters of contaminated water each day.

The state last year identified 43 municipalities that were likely to have uranium issues. Thirteen municipalities repeatedly tested high for uranium and have been ordered to find new water sources of develop a treatment plan.

A filtration technique known as reverse osmosis is considered the most effective way to remove uranium.
