THE PROBLEM WITH TAP WATER:
Municipalities generally do a great job treating our water so that we do not suffer from water born diseases, and it's ‘safe’ to drink. To say otherwise would be an injustice to the hard work and planning that goes into building a city. However, chemicals like chlorine and aluminum sulphate are left in the water after treating it.
- This is necessary in the standard treatment processes, but harmful to us in the long term.
- There is also the risk of pollution leakage into the system AFTER treatment.
- Further, municipalities don’t fully remove pesticides, herbicides, and other industrial pollutants.
The following are various newspaper articles highlighting the reason why tap water is a problem in our daily lives.
