More recently I blogged about how it is becoming increasingly harder to treat our water. I also shared first hand communication from a Trinity River Authority official that said bacteria at the wastewater treatment plants were becoming Chlorine resistant….
All this at a time when our water director’s job is up for grabs....this is very concerning that we and other fracking loving urban drilling towns in TX get the worst ratings in the top largest cities for drinking water quality…and if we didn’t have all the fracking nasties risking our water, (like the herbicides used at all these drilling sites, https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2017/12/01/when-frack-on-crack-meets-herbicide-harry/) the less disinfectants we’d need. The less disinfectants we need, the less cancer causing by-products of water treatments risk ……now to research how bad our bad our bladder cancer rates are.
Live in a smaller city than the top 200 biggest? You don’t want to be in an Oklahoman resident then….https://barnettshalehell.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/oklahoma-has-most-polluted-drinking-water-counties-the-fracking-connection/

Subject: Myers quoted in sales pitch / FYI Arlington 4t5h worst drinking water quality (not taste) results
“The health guideline of 0.004 ppb for arsenic was defined by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment as a public health goal, the level of a drinking water contaminant that does not pose a significant health risk. This health guideline protects against cancer.”
