The Environmental Working Group just released a water quality report on 100 big cities. Wanna know what's in your water? Ummmm....maybe not.
Anyway here's the link....
Big City Water
RALEIGH #74 OF 100...You're drinking only 19 nasties, while Charlotte /Mecklenburg (# 77 )is chugging 20. Greensboro (#26) is swilling only 5, Winston Salem-gargling 10.
You big city folks are likely better off than us....we do have a big wire-mesh screen to keep dead things out...! Actually, just kidding...we're getting a nano-filtration system that's pos'd-ta-be state of the art.
