One sided and combative.
12 January 2016 | by hatuvaSee all my reviews

I live in a major city. My tap water sometimes has unacceptable levels of fecal coliforms so they add so much chlorine when i take a shower my throat burns. Research the epidemic of prescription meds in tap water, municipalities are not equipped to remove them. I agree there are problems but trying to demonize everyone won't truly solve problems. Wish you had done more balanced report. In one part they claim water is shipped out of state then when they criticize FDA they say most of the water stays in state. They don't discuss job creation and local economic concerns. Also if this is such a huge industry, there is a need being met. My tap doesn't exist 3 hours from home and I'm not carrying a day's water supply on my back everywhere I go. No alternatives were presented.
