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 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.

Perfluorinated compounds (PFCs), 11 of which were found in this most recent government test, have become so ubiquitous that many of them are now detected in humans—including children. According to the CDC’s “Fourth National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals” published in 2009, a dozen different types of perfluorinated compounds were detected in Americans tested.We also know from recent events that city water supplies across America have actually been poisoned and made people extraordinarily sick. That list seems to expand every day. Today we start a new series that looks into those recent events, the chemicals that are causing people to get sick, and how you, as a water-consuming human who wants the best for his or her well-being, can put a stop to it and guarantee your health. Tap water, while conveniently piped directly to your home, can come from mysterious sources and the fluid that comes out when the tap turns on could contain chemicals that will hurt you and your family. Stay tuned as we explore the safety of tap water in America.
If a person drinks two pints of water a day, this will total 4,500 gallons of water passing through the body over a 70 year span. If the water is not totally pure, those 4,500 gallons will include 200-300 pounds of rock that the body cannot utilize. Most of that will be eliminated, but some can stay in the body, causing stiffness in the joints, hardening of the arteries, kidney stones, gall stones and blockages of arteries, microscopic capillaries and other passages in which liquids flow through our entire body.Why risk it? Our bodies require water to live, and the purer the water we drink, the healthier our bodies will be.
Uranium, the stuff of nuclear fuel for power plants and atom bombs, increasingly is showing in drinking water systems in major farming regions of the U.S. West — a naturally occurring but unexpected byproduct of irrigation, of drought, and of the overpumping of natural underground water reserves.This issue brings up a couple of very important points. People assume that tap water is just as clean as bottled water. Sometimes it is, but you never know what kind of chemicals, man-made or natural, you are putting into your body when you drink it. Chemicals are added for taste, to kill bacteria, and are leeched in from toxic household waste. Uranium is especially scary because it’s not filtered out by standard filtration processes. We want to reassure our customers that there are no traces of uranium in Castle Rock Water. We post the results of water testing on our website and those reports are free for the public to view. Castle Rock Water is infused with many naturally occurring minerals that our bodies need to be healthy. The water is never touched by humans and reaches you in the same pure state as when it flows from Mt. Shasta in energetic streams. Our water is some of the purest, best-tasting, and safest water on Earth. We hope you’ll try it!
The total amount of water needed to produce one pound of beef is 1,799 gallons. One pound of pork takes 576 gallons of water. As a comparison, the water footprint of soybeans is 216 gallons and corn is 108 gallons.If people in California, and all over the world, ate just 10 percent less meat, we’d be well on our way to solving the water crisis. Raising animals for slaughter is one of the least efficient uses of water. If more people ate a plant-based diet there’d be more water to go around for everyone. One of the most efficient uses of water is bottling it for human consumption. Many people keep cases of Castle Rock Water’s glass bottles on hand for drinking and cooking. They love it because it’s water from a sustainable source and reduces their intake of tap water. Plus, the living structured water tastes as water should while hydrating the body with a vitality that can only be found in water from the springs of Mt. Shasta.
