The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has released a new report on water pollution and water quality in the United States, which finds that pollution in the Midwest and the South remains at high levels.
The EPA report, issued today, also shows that the number of states that are reporting high levels or reporting significant levels of pollution is increasing as well.
In addition, the number in which residents are experiencing water quality problems increased.
The most affected states in terms of the number reporting high or significant levels are Alabama, Mississippi, Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi and Louisiana.
While the number showing significant pollution in Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana is down, it still represents the highest level of pollution in those states since the EPA began tracking the pollutant in the 1970s.
The report found that more than 80 percent of all of the states with pollution levels above the EPA’s new thresholds have a rate of increased water pollution that is higher than the national average.
The pollution levels that the EPA is tracking are at a new low for the country as a whole.
The number of counties where the EPA identified water quality issues is higher in some states than in others.
Mississippi, for example, has seen a rate increase of nearly 1,000 percent, according to the EPA.
That’s an increase of more than 60 percent in the last decade.
The increase in Mississippi was largely the result of the state’s oil-related emissions, which have risen more than 7,000-fold over the past two decades.
“We continue to see significant and persistent pollution and elevated concentrations of certain pollutants in Mississippi’s water,” the EPA said in a statement.
The agency also found that Mississippi was one of the 10 states with the highest rate of water quality concerns, and that pollution levels in that state were “increasing more than 50 percent” since the early 1980s.
More than half of all the states that have the highest levels of polluted water are in the West.
The highest concentrations of pollution are found in California, New York, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Arizona, Texas and Florida.
New York is home to the state of New York City, which is also the state with the lowest levels of polluting water.
New Jersey, the most populous state in the country, has also seen a rise in pollution levels since the 1970 and 80s.
Water quality issues in New Jersey are mostly due to the use of fracking, which involves the use, storage, and transportation of waste water to extract oil and gas.
In many places in the state, the pollution has been blamed on fracking and has resulted in the closure of many public wells.
The new report, however, does not include a number of places where the state is still seeing significant pollution levels.
For example, water quality testing data for New Jersey is not yet available and there are many gaps in the EPA data.
“The state is now a state that is seeing elevated levels of air and water pollution.
There are a number places where we’re still seeing pollution levels exceeding those levels,” said Michael Strayer, the executive director of the Center for Environmental Health at Columbia University, who is also a senior scientist at the National Resources Defense Council.
“These areas need to be investigated to ensure they have clean water.”
Strayers is a former EPA official who served as the agency’s top air and soil health expert for 10 years.
He told The Wall St. Journal that pollution from oil and natural gas continues to grow and that the lack of oversight from the EPA has been a big part of the problem.
“If the EPA was more transparent, we wouldn’t have this issue right now,” Stray, who has been working on the issue for years, said.
“I’m hoping that the federal government will step in and say, ‘Look, you’re in the wrong, we’re not going to let this happen.'”
The EPA did not respond to a request for comment.
The numbers in the new report are based on data from the federal EPA website, and are not adjusted for population or other factors.
The study was compiled from the public records of state and local agencies and by EPA staff.
