Drinking Water Becoming a Precious Commodity
A chemical spill in West Virginia, flooding in Alabama and now poisoned water in Ohio to name but a few places that are struggling to find clean water. While in California, some residents of that drought-plagued state are struggling to find water of any kind. In some areas on the West Coast, you can be fined up to $500.00 for watering your lawn.
Last weekend in Toledo, Ohio, and surrounding areas, some 400,000 residents were warned not to drink, brush their teeth or bathe with the water coming into their homes because of recent algae blooms that contaminated the municipal water system that over 11 million people rely on everyday.
The situation, which was already critical, rose to crisis level when the Governor declared a state of emergency. Water was being delivered across the state by the truckloads as National Guard soldiers scrambled to use water purification systems in an effort to produce water that was drinkable for its panicked citizens.

These algae blooms are caused by agricultural run-offs that carry poisonous toxins such as manure and chemical fertilizers like phosphorus from farms that wash into Lake Erie as well as leaky septic tanks that contribute to the contamination. As a result of the combination of these factors, large amounts of phosphorus were washing into the lake that is the main supplier of Municipal water in that area.
Residents of Toledo were told to not even wash their dishes with tap water; such was the degree of the poisonous pollution.
Officials warned that people drinking the tap water could suffer cramps, rashes and vomiting. They were also warned that pets could even die from drinking it. Those people with compromised immune systems such as the elderly and young children were strongly advised to avoid bathing or showering altogether.
Now that is some seriously sick drinking water if you are officially advised to not even let your skin come in contact with it. Tests on one treatment plant in Toledo showed microcystin levels high above the standards allowed for human consumption. How do they fix the problem? Introduce new chemicals to combat the other chemicals causing all the problems.
Events such as the one occurring right now in Ohio, last month in West Virginia, and who knows where tomorrow, are increasing with alarming regularity. At the risk of sounding pleonastic, pure, clean and healthy water is becoming scarcer everyday.
