Approximately six months ago, I noticed a residue on my tile floor and cabinet tops. I thought it might be a build up of cleaner. I googled remedies and did everything that supposedly would remove the residue. Nothing has worked. Eventually, I realized the reason the residue was consistent, was the water. The only thing that has helped was denatured alchol. I still have residue. I have been told that it could be the city's filtration system. I was told that the water could pass the State's requirements but not safe. I have lost three dogs within a one and half year span. Two of the three died of kidney failure. I need to know if anyone else has noticed the residue. If I am going to find a solution, I need to know that other's are having the same problem.

Doubtfully. Its most likely the abundance of meth moms who show no respect for the unborn. If you dont like the way the damn water taste then drink bottled water. Problem fixed. You have to stop depending on Cooper like its some major accomplished metroplex area. When in reality the city is a dump. Which is fine with me because small, unpopulated, lack of business towns such as Cooper apeal to those persons wishing to escape from the bustling towns that are overrun with hispanic immigrants and blacks who dont want to get a job and would rather take advantage of the system and get a free check instead of looking for a better life. I am sure Cooper has its share of white trash hillbilliness also but statistics dont lie. Small town=less garbage persons populating the place that I want to die peacefully in. And if dealing with a little crappy tap water here and there and poor public safety then so be it.

You're idiot, moron, shiitstarter! No one was complaining about the water and taste was never mentioned. They were questions concerning the possibility of toxic, hazardous chemicals in the water our children and grand children drink every day. This is a serious issue and it has nothing to do with meth, illegals, white trash, etc... It sounds like it's who you don't like it here so why don't you take your bitch ass back under whatever rock, from which you crept!

Now for the concerned people on here lets address the issue.I posted links to some documentaries that talk fluoride! This is some serious toxic stuff. Please! Don't take my word for it! Research it for yourself! A person drinking water with fluoride, as low as 1ppm, in it for 1 year will never be the same person mentally or physically. This chemical has a toxicity near that of arsenic!
I received a letter a few months ago saying that the supply source in our area had been change due to a level of 3.36ppm of fluoride. The max allowed 1ppm! Are we being slowly poisoned? Has anyone sent in samples for independent analysis or have information how and where they could post? I will check as well and post what I can find. Our children future depend on it!

Cooper gets it's water from Big Creek Lake. Unfortunately, Big Creek Lake was built on top of a trash dumb.

mr. jackson, i will have u know that i am not a meth mom, i did everything by the book before, during and after i had my babies. i had 3 miscarriages then was blessed with 2 boys. the 1st one with cancer. neuroblastoma. look it up. the other with congenital hypothyroidism. i have often blamed myself for the health problems and if it is the water wouldnt u want to know. maybe to prevent another child from being born sick, living at childrens hospital, getting poked and prodded like some lab rat. until u have lived it, then u dont deserve to comment. didnt ur mother ever teach u manners? let me leave u with a lil advice: if u cant say something nice then keep ur mouth shut. u look like the town idiot when u speak garbage.

Thank you. I did not know why this gentleman was upset. I wanted to know if there were other's having a problem. I am working with the Texas Environmental Department and I needed to know if there were others. We have a filtration system in our house. I have light tile which shows the residue. I am considering having an outside lab analyze it. My concern is if the water had something to do with my animals dying.........it could be harmful to a human.

It's truly amazing! I mean WTF! Where are your priorities? Post something creating drama, airing dirty laundry, or just plain talking scat about someone and you people just can't respond fast enough! Post something about the chemicals in the water that is causing serious health problems and no one gives a rats ass. You care more about drama, and pointing a finger at someone else more than your or your children's and grandchildren health! Yea drugs are bad but people choose to use them. The chemicals in our water are worse and cause more damage health-wise and are forced on us! If they were putting meth, or heroin in the water I bet you would do something. At least with meth and heroin it doesn't completely fry your brain and you can recover, unlike fluoride!

FACT: A person who drinks water fluoridated at 1ppm for 1 year will never be the same mentally or physically. Fluoride has been referred to as a chemical lobotomy and is the main ingredient in Prozac, and rat poison. This is just one(worst one) of the many chemicals in our water! Don't take my word for it, LOOK IT UP do the research yourself! It will shock you!

Just look at the number of posts since March 20. How many posts on this topic? How many posts just yak-yak gossip about others? How many posts actually show a shred of maturity, logic, reason or even have dialog? Do you people really just don't care? This mentality(or lack of) really puzzles me! I've seen more maturity and responsibility from kids in a day care center than the, so called, adults here! Whats really pathetic is most of those posts are from people who are "up" in the community!WWWTTTTFFFF!

Rant over....Lets see some results!

Does anyone know where the water is treated when it comes in from Big Creek Lake?
I don't know if this will help,but please bare with me. When I started dating my first husband he was working for the water treatment department in Commerce. I used to take his supper out to him at the treatment plant and I vaguely remember him showing me some of his duties(I wish I paid closer attention). I want to say he would periodically measure the levels of several local water towers, then fill them accordingly from more than one water source. I also want to say he would conduct some type of chemical tests from the tanks there at the facility. This was done similiar to the way one might check the clorine levels of a swimming pool. He would dip a measuring device in the water which consisted of several vials or tubes. Then he would drop different chemicals in each of the tubes and record the results in a log book along with the date, time and his initials on every shift. He would also use one of those paper strip(ph strip?). But exactly what he would test for I don't remember. I would ask him if I could, but he past a few years ago.
I'm sure things are done differently these days. But perhaps someone might know the procedures used today or maybe where they are conducted locally and if the records are available to the public? Or can someone tell me who we can contact to get some answers and facts quickly so if there is a problem we can get it corrected ASAP before anyone else experience any problems.

Here are some results: Farmer dumped chemicals for an extended time in the drainage ditch. Same farmer dumped tractor oil in the drainage ditch. 4 dogs dead, twenty cats dead and counting, and for all of you that care about your families, oil can get into the ground water if not properly cleaned up. So far, the oil contamination has not been cleaned up. I have always respected my neighbors, but apparently this guy had no respect or regard for his neighbors. He and his crew have contaminated the ground and probably our water system. I had no idea that he was slinging chemicals around like soda pop. Someone saw the oil dumping and I assume he is in big trouble. This was totally unnecessary and my question to him, what were you thinking. Children could get sick or die. Elderly could certainly feel the results of your actions. Look at your own child and I want you to seriously think, would you ever put her in the situation that you created.

If you had been here about 20 years or so ago, you would know the water is a marked improvement over the water then. You could not drink it because it tasted like it had iron in it. People had to buy their water. A friend worked at Campbell soup took a sample of the water and had it tested it was no difference between Cooper and Paris water.

I am sure there is an improvement in the water and I know many strive to achieve good water. However, my point is oil can get in the ground water and maybe not today but if the oil is not cleaned up, sometime in the future, our water could be contaminated. It is not fair for all the people who work so hard for us to have clean good water have all their work go in vain because one individual does not respect his neighbors or this community. The City had to send man power out to clean this site when I am sure their services could of been used elsewhere.
