I received the following letter from our water company yesterday,
“Notice of Monthly Surface Water Treatment Violation”
Apparently, our water company let a few things slip by them lately.
Hmm, reading on.
“Turbidity has no health effects. However, turbidity can interfere with disinfection and provide a medium for microbial growth. Turbidity may indicate the presence of disease causing organisms. These organisms include bacteria, viruses, and parasites that can cause symptoms such has nausea, cramps, diarrhea, and associated headaches.”
Am I the only one who sees the discrepancy here?
I can see it now:
Dr: “What brings you here today Mrs. Burpee?”
Me: “Well everyone in the family has been having cramping, nausea, and diarrhea.”
Dr.: “Oh, is that all. Those are not indicative of health problems. You all should just go home and drink some more water.”
Oh, and by the way. After a year and a half of the above symptoms, finally getting rid of my not so friendly Uganda parasites, I am not pleased that I may have contracted another from my safe and clean American water.
