Delawareonline.com posted a story today about a small town in southern Delaware that can’t use their tap water.
It’s a perfect example of the question I asked Dr. Marc Edwards at Swarthmore College earlier this week. He’s the guy who uncovered the lead problem in Flint’s water. In his presentation he showed how lead in water isn’t as big a problem as we’re led to believe. But, he’s made lead in water ‘sexy’ and it’s led to people ignoring many of the big problems with drinking water.
Right on cue, today’s story of chemicals found in the water in the little Delaware city is a perfect example of what I was trying to convey.
