The process used in this health hazard warning puts everyone at a huge risk. The contamination was detected on Monday but the warning wasn't issued until Friday. If they even THINK the water might be contaminated the warning should have been issued immediately. We brushed our teeth and drank our iced lemonade for five days before we were barely informed that we might be exposed to a potentially deadly bacterium. Shame on the Mayor for his lack of urgency.
