Geologists go underground to argue (loudly) about impacts of test-drilling on MTBE migration in South Tahoe. Lots of info on those pesky endocrine disrupters or disruptors or xenobiotics or ....whatever! San Francisco changes its disinfectant while the Mayor and others noodle about bottling Hetch Hetchy "snowmelt".........but where will the money flow?  Opponents want to derail San Antonio's voter-approved fluoridation plan. What do PCB worms have to do with drinking water? Thankfully, absolutely nothing!
