Dare I move to Los Alamos

My family has the opportunity to move to Los Alamos. I've seen a lot of pros and am looking for the cons. My major concern about moving to LA is our health- we do have elementary age children. I see the water quality report looks good. Is it? Would drinking & cooking with bottled water solve any possible problem or would bathing in possibly contaminated water still get into our systems? What about gardening - Is the soil safe? The air quality reports are showing the air is much healthier than where I am from but is there radiated particles in the air? Or is that only after a fire? Please share any info, links and opinions you have.

Haha- it's so funny they are asking you how single life is in NM. Because surely with your attitude you must be single.

What single life. Los Alamos is great for people with small kids and for retirees, but that's about it. It you are looking for a quiet town with lots of nature and hiking then yes this is your place, but good luck finding young people to hang with. After high school EVERYONE leaves and the demographics don't pick up again until around the 30s and young families.

Having grown up here I can say that the water, soil, and air are fine here. Probably better then fine. You won't need bottled water unless you are obsessive about having perfect water. With a family that includes elementary age children this is about as good as it gets.
