This week's NEWS

The worm turns... and becomes "the pore generator" in Preferential Flow: All that you always wanted to know about how groundwater can get contaminated but were afraid... your professor would ask! Billions in homeland security budget signed just in time: Seven days before the election. What does cadmium have to do with lead and copper control? Maybe phosphate treatment can help? Boil water advisories are the pits... but they sure beat the alternative! Conventional wisdom says deeper wells should be less impacted by MTBE... apparently not in fractured NH bedrock. WQTC covers just about everything!

Cadmium
  • Seattle school district gets lead under control; now, cadmium detections raise new fears (Seattle Post Intelligencer, October 23)
    Commentary: Seattle may be opening a new Pandora's Box with the cadmium findings. While the SDWA drinking water standards are intended to apply in the water delivered to the consumer, there has never been any mandate on water suppliers to do widespread monitoring of distribution water quality for many constituents, including cadmium and other trace metals. Of course, lead and copper are the exception. Sampling for compliance is based on point-of-entry to the distribution system.
