This week's NEWS

Is there nothing new under the sun? Still lots of MTBE, TCE, arsenic, E. coli  & security concerns! But, high tech comes: DNA, fluorescent molecules and........open dug wells & clay pots for arsenic control? "The Case of the Disappearing Perchlorate" in Maryland or what happens when you're looking for little tiny amounts in lots of water? No part of the world has a corner on common sense, which is not necessarily found along the Smith River (from whence cometh the quote of the week: "There's a time for politics and a time for common sense. Too bad it's seldom the same time.") A look at Shanghai's sources shows that they are real optimists. Continuous chlorination of contaminated wells is debated.
