Right now, it appears that only you and I are on the band wagon. And well I am leaving town permanantly today. I know there are concerned people though. All pregnant mothers should be concerned because an email I received from Department of Environmental Conservation, ". Some DBPs (e.g., chlorite, BDCM, and certain haloacetic acids) have also been shown to cause adverse reproductive or developmental effects in laboratory animals."
So it is important for the safety of all here in KTN to have this issue brought up over and over and let KPU know that it is unacceptable to delay fixing this water issue for 5 years. Can they not filter the water from the lakes of leaves and other products that when mixed with chlorine create haleoacedic acid? I mean they know that problem, they know how to solve it so what is the problem?
Ralph good luck with you battle, and don't expect any real help from the city. Minute they admit the water may be the reason for high rates of cancer, I could see lawsuits. And that is something they are going to do what ever they can to avoid.
