Water Quality Reports
SDWA Compliance Issues
  • Colorado town faces EPA fines for not submitting water quality reports (Vail Daily News, July 5)
    Commentary: While the state primacy agency has issued compliance orders to the town for water treatment problems (leading to several boil water advisories), USEPA's order focuses on the lack of the so-called consumer confidence reports (CCRs). Why the double-barrel assault? Colorado's CCR regulation may not have been in effect when the earlier violations occurred.

Consumer Attitude Survey
  • Utah survey about Latino water preferences leaves some wondering who was surveyed (Salt Lake Tribune, July 2)
    Commentary: The survey's findings about Latinos' use of alternative water sources (bottled or home filtered) has been corroborated by other studies. One concern expressed by many medical providers is that use of bottled water by children voids the benefits available from drinking fluoridated drinking water. (Note: The following article on vending machine water also touches on use of alternative water sources by Latinos.)
