05.29.19 | Brandon Dickson

A state watch group says New York's water supplies are "threatened."

NYPIRG's executive director Blair Horner says water supplies have been affected through industrial waste and algal blooms.

They found that 176 water systems in the state had one or more contaminants.

They add--nearly 6.5 million New Yorkers drink water that has not been tested for emerging contaminants.
