Tim must go! His lies are believed by too many people! There isn't any truth to these numbers! The health dept has done a lot of testing & the water is ok!

Simple Solution- Why don't the residents with bad wells just spend the $9000 to upgrade their wells? Instead of us with good wells having to spend $9000 for city water.

Yeah, if you actually read my comments. You would see I said no city water. I said those with bad wells, should fix their wells, not me buying city water.

As it has been forever, it will be forever, Orange County don't care about Bithlo, just pay your taxes and shut up. Just ask Bill Dongean.

The wells are NOT the freaking problem!!!!!!!!!! Yeah, the county testec mine. Said it was perfect. We got giardia, look it up. Replaced our well and ALL plumbing, still got sick. For years bithlo had a recycling plant, kinda big, thatvwas shut down due to the high levels of contaminants found in the surrounding waters....then tberes E&H and all tbe other junk yards that were here 30+ years ago... before they were regulated, pouri g poisin into tbe ground and into thecwater that SUPPLIES our wells. After going through that illness twice, paying a fortune for all new well and water linesm and then anither fortune ion the siftener/filter system we have now...I am for city water. Its costs me 50 per month on my power bill for the well and I know a lot of people with city water who pay 18-50 for water depending on family size. Its worth it to me.
