Has anyone else noticed crud in your city water? I am getting lots of gritty stuff, black junk, an once in awhile not clear water, kinda light yellowish looking. I have had to clean the screens out numberous times and it just keeps clogging back up. I don't even feel safe drinking the City water because of this.(been buying bottled water)

Call the health department and have them come to your house and check out the level of particulates in your water. If bad, then they will take care of the water dept.

I have gotten stuff in the line before as well, but it is usually in conjunction with work on a water line. I've gotten little pieces of rubber seal or grit. But that is not abnormal. Just clean it out and flush your lines. You can also call the Water Dept and ask if they worked on the lines in your area. And also by alerting them, there may be a problem with your line they don't even know about yet, like a break in the main.

I've seen my report on the water and what's in it and I have also read reports of what goes into the water you buy in the store. The stuff in the store, IF it was bottled somewhere else is no better and in some cases have been rated lower. The stuff that you bottle from the machine like at Walmart is still city water but who knows when their filter was cleaned last or even replaced.

The best water is your tap water ran through a top dollar filter. Good luck with your bottled water.

You sure seem to know alot did you used to run the Water Department or just work there?
Should you tell the water department and no one else for if there is a problem, let them decide if they want to tell anyone else? By that time if it is bad water how many could be sick or dead?

Does this City Mayor and City Council know or they like waiting for the water department, water board like did they the Electric Company to decide if they are going to tell the people, 5 or 6 years latter?

Should u keep a sample and call the Tennessee Health Department, news media, Mayor, and City Council?

How many if any have got sick or even died from drinking bad water, not told for weeks or months what was in the water?

How often and how many different places do the state check and test any cities water to insure that the public water supply is safe?
Are those places in low areas or high areas as the low areas might contain the worst contaminated water?
How many city officials know at once and would if knew inform the public right away if bad water was found?

Water departments are regulated and must follow strict guidelines or face heavy fines. The water is checked often to assure it is within those guidelines. Anyone can have their water analyzed if they are not trusting like you.

As for crud in your water, every ones lines are not connected so yours may break and stop, but mind keeps running. If you don't trust your water source Bob, switch to milk, but maybe the farmer feeds his cows LSD or other drugs. You could buy coconuts, and drink the water in them but who knows what a monkey might have done to it. Or better still, you could move to Mexico.

If what the water department has done in the past is any indication, what they would do in the future would it supprise anyone what they would do?

I am glad you are working. Hope you found everything. I don't know jack about atoms or whatever but I know our water stinks. We are afraid to drink it. Our dogs will not drink it until the clorine evaperates. It seems like the standards for clean water drop everyday. I think they base it on nobody died right after drinking a class of water. Smaller cities seem to tend to overlook a thing or two. It may not kill you instantly but I am sure in the long run it will shorten your life span.

Your first inclination was correct, I do know a lot about many things in life. I've been around a while and down the block a few times. As for the rest of your paranoid schizophrenic mumbo-jumbo, switch to beer like me and relax. Many societies actually brewed beer for that very purpose before we had water departments poisoning the water with chemicals.

And he who does nothing but post it over and over on Topix is insane. You are as guilty because you complain to the wrong people who don't believe you are smart enough to really know anything. Go bitch to the water department. Call Washington D.C. but leave us alone because we heard it all now several times.

Dead Cows or animals floating down the river may canít be stopped but if those are dug out of the City / County water intake by the water department or EMS then at once should those dead animals be reported to the public all city and county residents reported for who knows what diseases they could have died of? So the people who use that water can at least drink bottle water or boil their water?
Are some people can drink beer and make fun of others who donít but care about the health and good of all the people!

How smart do you think you are? If someone told you based on all your posts, you have some serious mental issue, would you go get checked by a doctor? Or would you refuse to believe you might be sick? If you are really sick in the head, would you recognize it? Would you think, "maybe" if people told you you seem to have issues?

You seem smart enough to use a computer and keyboard, although your use of English says you obviously have some issues putting words together in the proper order, which is a sign of a brain disorder. And your thinking that dead cows are floating down the river getting stuck in the intake is questionable as well.

So the big question is, are you smart enough to agree and go get checked out, or too far gone to believe you have a problem? I personally think you have some real issues and/or you are mentally diminished and need to be examined.

If you refuse to get help, boil your water just to be safe. You will feel better.

Would u go get checked by a psychiatist if someone told u have mental issues, based on your posts and the use of dirty lanuage?
Been told by a reliable person the dead cows floating down river being dug out of intake pipe is true!
Beleive it or not! Just ask those that know, if they lie, remember people like u were told!

Thanks for the advice!
