This week's NEWS

New Health Canada lead guidelines put dueling sampling protocols in the spotlight. PPCPs continue to show up in the headlines but... just what are they? What does it cost to consolidate and eliminate a problem small water system? If a public official ought to get in a little trouble for falsifying one piece of data, how about for faking 500 water quality compliance samples? More good information is available for thinking about a new TCR.

Microbiological

  • Two small systems notify customers of bacterial contamination: Commentary: When people get their water-health advisories via the popular press, the subtleties are important. In Kansas, the message is either they "should" boil their water, or "they might want to." In Florida, the same type of bacterial finding led the county to "recommend that residents drink bottled water and boil water for other uses."

Perchlorate in Food

  • Perchlorate questions and answers (Food Consumer, June 4) (Note: While this seemingly straightforward Q&A is attributed to FDA, it is not clear that it is an official FDA document.)

Small Water Systems

  • Small Connecticut system wants service from adjacent town's system (Hartford Courant, May 31)
    Commentary: But it ain't gonna be cheap! It looks like the cost could average over $40,000 for each of the 23 homes, although it can be paid over 20 years. And these folks have already paid for the small system that is inadequate with shallow wells and high nitrates.
