The new research shows that gas wells were not adequately cemented to prevent contaminants from flowing into the aquifer. It also shows that in some cases, hydraulic fracturing and acid stimulation of gas wells took place at depths similar to private drinking water wells, which is not illegal and is more likely to happen in the West because the formations that hold the gas are closer to the surface.Not only do we have to worry about lead in our municipal drinking water, now we have to beware of chemical compounds and gas in our well water. When water is as nature intended, it’s pure, clean, and fresh. That’s the kind of water our bodies thrive on. Drinking the best water leads to better health and overall vitality, while overly-treated water can lose its health benefits and even have negative consequences. Why take the chance? Consider having fresh water delivered right to your home for drinking. Just click here for more information.
In 2006, 2008, and again in 2012, elevated levels of lead were found in drinking fountains in city schools, but officials did not “chart a a comprehensive attack on lead” until 2013, The New York Times reported yesterday. The report comes as lead contamination in urban areas has come under closer scrutiny. But despite lead levels being elevated up to 60 times the federal threshold at eight schools in 2006, students were not switched to bottled water until two years later, The New York Times reported. By 2013, all but six Jersey City schools had lead contamination, with one fountain testing at 853 times the accepted maximum, the report states.Lead poisoning is exceptionally dangerous for children and can result in nervous system damage and even death. There is no safe minimum for lead exposure and the fact that it’s showing up in schools is reason to send children to school with bottles of clean water from home. Lead is showing up in school drinking water all across the country, from Seattle to Ohio to Michigan to New Jersey, and will very likely appear in more cities. The biggest reason is because of lead pipes that are many decades old. Water absorbs chemicals from whatever it travels through, and old lead pipes are notorious for poisoning drinking water. The best way to avoid lead is to drink bottled water that is regularly tested. Castle Rock Water is pure, fresh mountain spring water loaded with natural electrolytes and healthy minerals. People all across California are having it delivered right to their homes and offices so they can have drinking water that they can feel good about serving to their families.

The water systems, which reported lead levels exceeding Environmental Protection Agency standards, collectively supply water to 6 million people. About 350 of those systems provide drinking water to schools or day cares. The USA TODAY NETWORK investigation also found at least 180 of the water systems failed to notify consumers about the high lead levels as federal rules require.Even in small doses, lead poses a health threat. There is no amount deemed safe by the EPA, which means even the slightest trace can be harmful. Pregnant women and young children are most at risk. Lead can damage growing brains and cause reduced IQs, attention disorders and other problem behaviors. Infants fed formula made with contaminated tap water face significant risk. Adults can face kidney problems, high blood pressure and increased risks of cardiovascular deaths. How did this happen in our country? The USA Today article gives all the details, but it comes down to a lack of proper treatment and testing, in addition to decades-old lead pipes that feed water systems. One of the reasons Castle Rock Water exists is because tap water can’t be trusted. Water is the most vital element in the survival and vitality of humans and drinking tainted water can hurt us in so many different ways.

Water utilities in some of the largest cities in the US that collectively serve some 12 million people have used tests that downplay the amount of lead contamination found in drinking water for more than a decade, an analysis of testing protocols reveals.If that isn’t scary enough, the article goes on to say that an estimated 96 million Americans live with lead service lines – pipes that carry water from mains to meters. Lead lines are one of the most serious risk factors affecting the amount of lead in water that pours from the tap. Water is naturally a corrosive liquid and takes on the properties of the materials it passes through. Drinking water from lead pipes over a prolonged period of time could lead to disastrous health results. Lead poisoning is a serious and sometimes fatal condition. It occurs when lead builds up in the body over an extended period of time. Lead is a highly toxic metal and a very strong poison, especially in young children. Since lead poisoning affects the body’s nervous system, symptoms can include poor memory, poor behavior, and falling grades in school. It can also lead to vomiting, kidney disfunction and, ultimately, coma and death. The best way to protect yourself from lead exposure in tap water is to not drink tap water. All over the country people are turning to bottled water for their cooking and drinking needs, which can be delivered straight to the home on a regular basis. Castle Rock Water offers this service, and posts its water quality reports online for all to view. The water is pure, fresh, and never modified by humans. The human body thrives on natural untouched water, and it doesn’t get any more pure than the water that flows through the streams of Mt. Shasta.

In charge of the city’s budget in the midst of a financial emergency, the state of Michigan decided to switch Flint’s water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River as a cost-saving measure. The river had a reputation for nastiness and after the switch in April of 2014, residents began to complain that their water looked, smelled, and tasted funny.
Researchers at Virginia Tech found the water was highly corrosive. A lawsuit alleges the state Department of Environmental Quality didn’t treat the water for corrosion and because so many service lines to Flint are made of lead, the toxic element leached into the water of the city’s homes and was subsequently unknowingly consumed by the city’s residents.
The situation shows a blatant disregard for people’s health in exchange for saving money. Even worse, now there are allegations that the world’s biggest bottler of water may have played a part in the crisis.In 2001 and 2002, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality issued permits to the world’s largest water bottler (we have a policy of not directly naming or speaking negatively of competitors) to pump up to 400 gallons of water per minute from aquifers that feed Lake Michigan. This sparked a decade-long legal battle between that company and the residents of Mecosta County, Michigan, where the wells are located. One of the most surprising things about this story is that, in Mecosta County, this water bottler is not required to pay anything to extract the water, besides a small permitting fee to the state and the cost of leases to a private landowner. In fact, the company received $13 million in tax breaks from the state to locate the plant in Michigan. But it goes a step further: the company’s spokesperson is married to the chief of staff of Michigan’s governor. In effect, this company gets paid to pump fresh clean water while Flint’s residents are forced to pay some of the highest water rates in the country for toxic water. That’s not right. Unfortunately, Flint isn’t the only city in this country to be experiencing problems with its tap water. It’s happening all over the United States, from California to New York, and the Flint crisis seems to have brought them to light. People who drink tap water are at the mercy of the agencies in charge of treating it. People who drink water bottled by the world’s largest water bottler are contributing to the bottom line of a huge corporation that gives nothing back the communities in which it operates. These are just some of the reasons companies like Castle Rock Water, which only bottle fresh spring water in glass bottles and gives back to their communities, are experiencing growth in home water delivery. People are fed up with corporate giants and want to support family owned business that provide quality water at a fair price. Setting up regular deliveries of fresh drinking water is the best way to avoid tap water and guarantee that you’re not exposing yourself, and your family, to toxic chemicals.
