Indians Have the Worst Access to Safe Drinking Water in the World – India Real Time – WSJ

India has the highest number of people in the world without access to safe water, a report released to mark World Water Day showed Tuesday.

The country has 75.8 million people, at least 5% of its 1.25 billion population, without access to clean water, the report by WaterAid, a water and sanitation nonprofit headquartered in London, says.

The majority of those people come from impoverished communities–living on around $4.31 a day–and are forced to collect dirty water from open ponds and rivers or spend most of what they earn buying water from tankers, the report  says.
