Re: Water update

Daryl: Yes, her e-mail address would be wonderful and if she consents,
her phone number as well. It would no doubt be a very useful undertaking
to talk with her about her experiences and get some tips from her...you
may also pass on my e-mail to her if you wish: mhobertm@excite.com.
Thanks so much for this.

AM<br>Subject: [CHAT] Water update<br><br><br>> Just thought I'd give
you all an update on our water contamination<br>> problem here in Hills,
Iowa: I have been "elected" as chairperson of our<br>> volunteer water
task force that our city council established as a way<br>> for our
community to be proactive in dealing with this problem. Am<br>> fielding
a great number of phone calls from neighbors as well as<br>> newspaper
and TV reporters and spending a whole lot of time rounding up<br>>
information. Our first task was to enlist the help of local
legislators<br>> in pushing the EPA into making good on their promise to
deliver water to<br>> the homes that have contaminated wells...that
promise was made over 6<br>> weeks ago and thanks to our actions, the
water finally showed up<br>> yesterday!!! It is now suspected that the
area of contamination might be<br>> bigger than previously thought, so
the EPA has started testing more<br>> wells, mine included. I think I've
learned more about water<br>> contamination in the past month than I've
ever thought I'd need to<br>> know...whew! Kind of like a crash course
in reviewing all the organic<br>> chemistry I had to learn in high
school and college. One question I<br>> haven't been able to find an
answer to is the one I'm hoping someone on

<br>> this list might be able to help with: is it safe to use ground
water<br>> contaminated with perchlorates on vegetable gardens? Many of
our town's<br>> residents have quite large veggie crops and now people
are concerned<br>> that if their water is full of perchlorates it could
end up in the food<br>> they are growing. I haven't been able to get the
folks at the EPA to<br>> definitively answer this (or really any other)
question I've<br>> asked...typical government double speak is their
usual m.o. Anyway, any<br>> help with this one is greatly appreciated
and thank you in advance.<br>><br>><br>><br>> Melody, IA (Z
