Trevor Noah – America’s Water Quality

On March 23, 2022, Trevor Noah of The Daily Show covered America’s failing water infrastructure.

Known for his comedic approach to news, Noah does a good job sharing pressing concerns.

Since our goal at WaterBadge is water safety, water quality, and sharing knowledge, we thought it would be helpful to share his video.

Key Takeaways:

  • Our infrastructure (including water lines) is old and breaking down.
  • Democrats and Republicans disagree on how to pay for it.
    • Democrats favor a tax on corporations rather than imposing on the American people.
  • Water problems are difficult to see.
    • Lead contamination is invisible to the naked eye, for example.
  • America’s water infrastructure received a grade of D from the American Society of Civil Engineers.
  • 545 municipalities around the country rely on cast iron piping that is more than 100 years old.


At WaterBadge, we advocate working on water quality issues at the household and local government level.

On each of our 788 water quality reports, we provide links to city officials as well as solutions to improve your home’s water.

We focus on the household first because, let’s face it, you can do more in a day for your family than government can do in 10 years.
