News： 10 american cities with the worst drinking water
6. Houston (City of Houston Public Works)
Houston is the fourth-largest U.S. city. It gets its water from sources such as the Trinity River, the San Jacinto Rivers and Lake Houston. Texas conducted 22,083 water quality tests between 2004 and 2007 on Houston’s water supply, and found 18 chemicals that exceeded federal and state health guidelines, compared to the national average of four. Three chemicals exceeded EPA legal health standards, against the national average of 0.5 chemicals. A total of 46 pollutants were detected, compared to the national average of eight. The city water has contained illegal levels of alpha particles, a form of radiation. Similarly, haloacetic acids, from various disinfection byproducts, have been detected.
City of Houston: Water is safe to drink, use
The take-away? The city says they are safe and the water is fine to drink.
“If you went to a restaurant and the food they served you was rancid tasting, but they assured you it was safe, would that be OK? Is it right to be paying for something that is sub-quality?” said Shirley.
No one from public works would talk on camera, but they tell Local 2 the city’s responsibility is to meet federal and state standards and it is doing that.
The city says the naturally occurring compounds will naturally diminish with time and weather changes.
Public works says it has no built-in treatment remedies, but refrigerating a pitcher of tap water or using a water filtration system containing carbon are two ways to mitigate the smell and tastes of the compounds.
If the problem persists the city could use portable systems to remove the compounds.
