If they could have done a better job communicating the state of things to the public, how can we be sure that it is true that the public was never at risk? Actually, this assurance sounds more like a PR formulaic statement. In order to believe this as a fact, we need a narrative that should include some technical information- an assurance easier to swallow, please! And why is the business administrator the one to assure us of our safety? Shouldn't it be the town engineers, the mayor, or health officer?...(Oh, the concern for liability must be the first precaution of the day!) And if our health was never at risk, why bother at all?

When the town send their personnel to distribute leaflets around town, the worker that handed it to me said that it was really all over anyway- the poor chap looked frustrated and tired. Of course, I followed the precautions and boiled water until further instructed. But it seems that even as the effort was already underway to COMMUNICATE, the war was over! A+ for formality; D- for professionalism! Good thing that this was not a real public threat!
