I just read an interesting AP article about the need for measurement of pharmaseudical redidue in municipal water sources. Does Palo Alto test our water for this type of pollutant? Web Link

Maybe that's why there are so many manic-depressive posts in these forums.

Seriously, though, Hetch-Hetchy water should be pretty clean, when we can get it. Druggy water is mostly found in water that is downstream of sewage treatment plants. When the Hetch-Hetchy water runs out and PA has to use ground water, then the major problem is toxic pollution like gasoline leaking from defective service stations and also industrial pollution from big companies like Hewlett-Packard.
