What the Health Department failed to mention is that of the 16 water systems that are affected - are those considered water authorities. That number does not include houses that surround our complexes that currently are using wells. "State health officials say there have not been any health problems lined to the contamination, and they don't expect any at the levels that have been found". I find that statment hard to believe considering we were fined daily and recently forced to pass a bill to have public piping of water put in. Why, because the Health Department told us that it would cause all forms of cancer, liver problems, etc. Maybe they should get their story straight before they force condo owners to pay for public water works.

I certainly hope Channel 8 and others doesn't blow this out of proportion since the levels of Uranium are still well below any concerns for Health and Safety. It is a naturally occuring element found in the earth and in our bodies to some extent. The public have a higher chance of getting cancer from breathing Ct's fresh air than from these levels of Uranium.

Another thing "discovered" by CT's politicians to separate you from your money, which will be given to a friendly few political contributors that do the tests and dig in the pipes.
