I would like to do a survey on the drinking water. They say that you cannot drinking the water in Middleboro. I found out why. The wells are to shallow, the wells should be 500 feet or more. I will send a contact, just ask in the reply.
You are wrong

The well water in Middleborough is fine. The wells here are the same as the wells used all across the region.

Any well 500 feet or more would be a bedrock well and is deep water. That is a good thing too.

But to say that there is anything wrong with the water I drink is a lie.

Again, you can see that some people that that it is ok. We need the DEP or the EPA to decide how far the well must go.

There are places in Middleboro in which bedrock is 15 feet below the surface and the water is coming at a great distance.

You seem to have oversimplified the issue based on half of the information.

The purity of the water is not simply determined by the depth of the well. Additionally, some wells have not gone to 500 feet and contain salt water.

the water supply records on line if you want to do a survey. Who says you can't drink the water in Middleboro? LMAO

If your concerns run that deep check out Bourne and Falmouth and the Otis Air Force base plume.

Dumb topic. Public water supply is one of the most closely scrutinized things. If you need to come here for research something is wrong.

Go look at the bottled water industry which is not as watched as the public drinking water industry.
Right

Bottled water has nothing to do with municipal public water supply. Eddie or whoever you are. Many times you would be far better off drink public water.

You are better off to be concerned about Chinese products coming nto the USA

I see we a steal mate about drinking water. Is their a problem ? The manganese and iron levels are too high in Middleboro, did you know this. The company that made steel wheels for box cars contaimanted the drinking wells. This is where the ALS is coming from. Their is other chemicals
that are in drinking water also. I don't know about drinking water from bottled water issues, only Middleboro, Mass

You mean a Stalemate?

No. Iron and Manganeese are not a health issue. It is astehetics. So don't try to scare people with a lie.

Wells are not comtaminiated so stop it. There is no contamination.

The ALS in not coming from the water. You are lieing.

Ed. You have no clue as to what you are talking about. None. So stop trying to scare people.

There is not contamination.

Iron and Manganeese are a health issue in excess, just ask DEP. It is astehetics of course. I am not trying to scare anybody, it a fact.

Wells can be comtaminiated, so I have a right to complain and be heard, if contaminated, the EPA must act on it. Did you ask the EPA to check ? Did you check for the contamination ? probaly not. The officals have to determine this, not you !

is a health issue when in excess. Including oxygen and water.

I guess I will have to start talking to residents about the drinking water and how it effects health. This may be a work in progress. I do wonder if they know of the hazardous wates sites in Middleboro.

How safe is my drinking water?

Every day, more than six million Bay Staters turn on the tap and take a drink of water from a public water supply. The public water supplies in Massachusetts are among the best in the country, and they are subject to the most stringent government standards in the world. To protect your health, both the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) maintain exacting standards. MassDEP requires your local water supplier to perform ongoing tests for the presence of bacteria, lead and other heavy metals, herbicides and pesticides, and industrial solvents. If testing reveals an exceedance of a federal standard, the water supplier is required to notify customers through local news media. If bacteria or chemicals are found in levels that pose a threat to your health, the water supply is treated to remove the contaminants or taken out of service if the problem can't be solved immediately

Casino Issue

Malden, MA

#17 Nov 12, 2008
The casino will have to have their own wells for there usage. 301 CMR 11.03 ( 4 ) ( A ). This is not in the plan. Maybe the casino can fix the water problem in Middleboro. I think the casino and Middleboro should start talking about the water woes and fix some out standing issues. Middleboro will be a nice place to live when the casino comes to town.
Rare Cancers

Malden, MA

#18 Nov 12, 2008
The cancer registry will have to up date the files and report any cancers to the local hospital. The rare cancers are not reportable to the local hospital, just DEP. This is a major road block for the people that have rare cancers from drinking water. High Iron and Maganese and other hazardous waste products that leach into the aquifers. They all should be reported. The hazardous waste sites should be cleaned up.

....
Oxidative stress is considered a major factor in the induction of the mitochondrial permeability transition (MPT)(12, 13). The MPT is a Ca+2-dependent process often associated with various other factors (14). The MPT is characterized by opening of the permeability transition pore in the inner mitochondrial membrane, resulting in increased permeability of this membrane to protons, ions, and other solutes 1500 Da. This increased permeability leads to a collapse of the mitochondrial inner membrane potential, colloid osmotic swelling of the mitochondrial matrix, defective oxidative phosphorylation, and cessation of ATP synthesis, ultimately resulting in mitochondrial failure (15). The MPT is characteristically blocked by cyclosporin A (CsA)(16).
Because manganese toxicity is associated with oxidative stress, a major inducer of the MPT, we examined the possible role of the MPT in the mechanism of manganese neurotoxicity. The MPT was assessed in cultured astrocytes and neurons after exposure to different concentrations of manganese acetate for variable time points.
...
Although mechanisms involved in the induction of the MPT by manganese are not known, manganese has been shown to induce oxidative stress. Manganese, being a transition element, is capable of existing in different oxidation states, including Mn2+, Mn3+ and Mn4+. The transitional shift of Mn2+ to Mn3+ could lead to increased oxidant capacity of this metal. Accordingly, recent reports indicate that Mn3+ was more toxic compared with Mn2+(35). Treatment of astrocytes with manganese increased free radical production and decreased the activities of key antioxidant enzymes, SOD and glutathione peroxidase (11). More recently, Zhang et al.(34) reported the increased production of free radicals in isolated rat brain mitochondria exposed to manganese, in addition to the inhibition of various electron transport chain enzymes....
In summary, we have shown that manganese preferentially induces the MPT in cultured astrocytes. Cultured neurons were far less affected by manganese exposure compared with astrocytes. The manganese-induced MPT was blocked by antioxidants, suggesting the potential involvement of oxidative stress in this process. Induction of the MPT by manganese and associated mitochondrial dysfunction in astrocytes may represent key mechanisms in manganese neurotoxicity.

Contact DEP in Lakeville if you have any major questions about the water in Middleboro.

Eddie does not know what he is talking about. He is attempting to scare people and a casino has nothing to do with any of this.
