This week's NEWS

New water hero: NY's Commissioner takes on city-water detractor. Blind study in Iowa shows home treatment devices do not reduce disease. Why won't the perchlorate researcher tell us what he really thinks? How do you "bury a reservoir" and keep the neighbors happy? NDWAC will cover important stuff... in Cincinnati. UK dental-health advocates roll out the "shock" wave to get fluoridation passed. Everything you wanted to know (and need to) about Ion Exchange. Is there a safe harbor for MTBE in the hallowed halls of Congress? Follow the drip! .....but we're not talking about the Callifornia governor-recall election! And speaking of big-mouth bass, huge new drinking water reservoir opens in Southern California.

  • NYC's "Commish" reins in Brita over fear-mongering ad campaign
    (New York Times, September 25 - free registration required)

  • Study finds no difference in tap water and POU device-treated water re: incidence of gastrointestinal illness (UC Berkeley press release, September 25)
    Commentary: Water utilities the world-around will take heart at these two news items. NY's water leader won't have to buy himself a single libation at the next drinking water meeting for his aggressive defense of his city's product. POU/bottled water purveyors likely will think carefully about how they characterize the public's piped drinking water supply. The Iowa health-effects study by a noted California researcher is a counterbalance to some earlier research in Toronto that suggested drinking tap water might carry an increased risk of waterborne illness when compared to home-treated water. More studies will be needed... of course.
