Poisoned Water (Part 2)

A Bob Flicker Report




(PART #2)


 It Could Very Well Be Affecting You and Your Family! 

(Click: Lead In Your Water by Bob Flicker)


You can add radioactive chemicals leeching into your wells and other water supplies such as streams and rivers.  (More further down in this report.)


They call it pollution. What it really is, without mincing words, are poisons in the form of 141 unregulated and 119 regulated chemical poisons for a grand total of 260 poisons entering your and your neighbors’ water supplies as well as the chance of radioactive chemicals. This is from a report by Larry West, Environmental Issues Expert. (See below)


The only thing that is in short supply is TRUTH & HONESTY! Who can you trust? Unfortunately, trust is in short supply. Consider that public water supplies in 42 states are admitted to be contaminated by the Environmental Works Group. What about the other eight states? What about your water supply?


Must Discovery Always Be Too Late?


Don’t become a helpless victim! You and your family are much too important to let poisons enter and remain undiscovered in your drinking water.  Take action! Don’t try to do it by yourself. Get together with your neighbors and form an action group. Give it a name. You would be amazed at the quick responses your action group would receive from government agencies, particularly in this election year.

Tainted Water Worries Rise

By Cameron McWhirter and Jon Kamp


Three states examine extent of an industrial chemical spread to drinking-water supply:

Officials in Vermont, New Hampshire and New York are expanding their efforts to find out how much of a potentially toxic chemical ended up in drinking water, from private wells to public water systems.

Factories for decades used the chemical perfluorooctanoic acid or PFOA...

(My note: PFOA has links to cancer)

Cool, clear water...it ain’t!

And then there was this report...

Updated December 10, 2014

Public water supplies in 42 U.S. states are contaminated with 141 unregulated chemicals for which the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has never established safety standards, according to an investigation by the Environmental Working Group (EWG).

Tainted Tap Water Used by Millions of Americans

Another 119 regulated chemicals—a total of 260 contaminants altogether—were found by the environmental group in a two-and-a-half-year analysis of more than 22 million tap water quality tests. The tests, which are required under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act, were conducted at nearly 40,000 utilities that supply water to 231 million people.


Pollution Threatens Tap Water Quality

According to a report by the EWG, the top 10 states with the most contaminants in their drinking water were California, Wisconsin, Arizona, Florida, North Carolina, Texas, New York, Nevada, Pennsylvania and Illinois—in that order. EWG said the biggest sources of contaminants were agriculture, industry and pollution from sprawl and urban runoff.




The article above by Larry West is dated 12/10/14 and can be assumed to be outdated. Like the situation involving lead found in the water supplies of such cities as Flint, Michigan (See: Lead In Your Water), chemical poisons in your water supply might exist and not be revealed by knowing authorities unless they are exposed.

Radioactive Hot Spot Prompts Concerns

By John R. Emshwiller


About a mile from homes in Missouri’s St. Louis County lies a radioactive (color added) hot spot with contamination levels hundreds of times above federal safety guidelines. But there are no plans to clean it up. ...


... They say a recent sampling they did suggests contamination from the radioactive hot spot is entering a nearby stream, known as Coldwater Creek, and then traveling downstream into yards of homes.




Discovery, in almost every case, happens after the damage has been done. Unfortunately, you have to be suspicious and untrusting of  public officials responsible for maintaining clean water in your area. This is not to say that there are many honest and trustworthy public officials responsible for maintaining clean water. The bad guys damage the reputations of the many honest people doing their job  keeping your water free from contaminates.


My addition

illegal dumping of conaminates



Where do you think that radioactive waste goes if there is a well in the yard? Worse yet, where do you think it will go if the town gets its water from a central well(s) and that radioactive waste seeps in?


Is this a lone situation? Hardly. Be vigilant! Test your water.
