Is the drinking water polluted?

Pollution of drinking water is a growing problem. Recently, the entire Frederiksberg municipality was affected by bacteria-contaminated water. And a completely new substance, TFA, has appeared in water wells throughout Denmark. Now, more than 52 municipalities want to purify their drinking water.
