Chlorine


A group of citizens braved fluorescent lighting, TV cameras, and state bureaucrats tonight to attend a hearing about the local water system. It seems that Three Rivers is the second largest city in the state without a regular program for treating its water, and the state wants that changed. Young and old locals said that they like their water just fine the way it is, and used the opportunity to expound on the evils of chlorine. What will happen, I wonder?

Interesting. And what do they intend to use instead of chlorine? Chlorine in the right amounts is a great purifier...

What happened to the fluoride debate? That has been a bugaboo for years but is used routinely by dental hygienists.

I do not understand why no chlorine. It would mean the end of the "don't drink the water" days we have!
