Residents in Newark, NJ are facing a growing emergency over lead contamination in the city's drinking water supply, the Huffington Post website reports today.

The crisis is due to years of mismanagement and has forced city officials to warn tens of thousands of residents against drinking tap water for fear of lead poisoning.

Newark has been struggling to curb elevated levels of lead in its drinking water supply for years.
