Tap water in Maharashtra is contaminated and so is the drinking water supplied by the state''s municipal bodies. The contamination is caused by the presence of arsenic, a byproduct of phosphate mining, in the drinking water. This contamination has been present for years in the city of Mumbai, the state capital, where the bulk of the Mumbai''s population lives.

The contamination has been a source of great controversy since the beginning of the twenty-first century, and in particular, since the beginning of the twenty-first century, when the water supply to Mumbai was changed. However, even if the change occurred after the public became aware of the contaminated drinking water, the problem of contaminated drinking water is still very much alive.

Since the change in the drinking water supply, many municipalities and municipal bodies have made efforts to improve the quality of the water supply. But the problem of contaminated drinking water still remains.
