Question Dangerous water in federal prison.

My Loved One's federal prison facility finally admitted in writing that the water is contaminated and not safe to drink (gray sludge, discolored and strong odor), but is not providing more than 16 oz of bottled water/day. The inmates have no access to clean drinking water, even to purchase, due to lockdown. What accountability or oversight does BOP have for minimum humanitarian conditions? Is there an agency or department that I can I appeal to for independent testing of the water and access to clean water asap? My LO has developed serious health issues and has not received adequate medical care. We believe his symptoms are the direct result of the conditions there. We are afraid for his life. BTW, this is not a new problem. Has been ongoing, but has worsened significantly in the past few weeks.

Welcome to Prison Talk. I moved your question to the federal prison forums.

Which federal prison are you referring to?
