You know you're in trouble if........the coroner is recommending better trained water officials!  State primacy agencies update regulations to meet national regulatory requirements.....and more. Precautionary boil water decisions are difficult but seem to be more common.  The analysis of the cost to meet a new arsenic MCL is deemed "credible" but the cost itself may still be "incredible!" Future EPA regulatory cost-estimates may be even less.......incredible.  Bad-mouthing public water system safety gets POU sellers in hot water.  Walkerton inquiry winds down, but 1991 Camelford inquiry winds...............up?
