    I bet this happens far more often than we hear about. It is one of the reasons why I insist on having a well in any house that I live. At least there is a better chance of not being poisoned that way.

    It is the private well water that is the problem, because the wells are too close to the source of the contamination. That, and the fact that the government agency knew about the problem and did not report it... I hope some heads roll for this.

    I definitely don't assume anything. We have our water tested twice a year, just in case.

    Of course they are still drinking it. What other choice do they have? The government will fix everything, don't worry!

    Oh! I'm so relieved! I know I should trust in the government to solve all my problems. They tell me this everywhere I go... NOT

    There should be some people held to account for this, but I doubt that will happen.
