Is Your Family’s Tap Water Contaminated?

Water Quality Testing

How can you know if you are drinking contaminated water?

Water supplied by your city is considered safe to drink, however, the water is only tested when it leaves the supplier but not when it enters your home where it is most important.

The Flint, Michigan population hadn’t a clue that their city had recently attempted to save money by unhooking the city from Lake Huron, the fresh water drinking source, and replace it with water from the Flint River.

LeeAnne Walters, a resident, was quoted as saying that her tap water tested at 27 times the limit for lead. That was after she realized that one of her sons was ill, her 18-year-old daughter’s hair was falling out and when the children bathed they broke out in red bumps.

The World Health Organization reports that lead’s neurological and behavioral effects “are believed to be irreversible.”

Lead testing for children in Flint revealed brain-damaging levels, and adults suffered a ten-fold upsurge in Legionnaires’ Disease. Eighty-seven people in Flint have contracted Legionnaires’ Disease, and ten have died. At least six more toxins have been found in routine blood workups, concerning doctors about upcoming ailments as well. Home values have plummeted to zero, as Flint Michigan has become synonymous with poison. Flint’s future has been effectively flushed away.
