    I decided to post my city's(Chicago) annual water quality, especially since many members don't believe there are harmful pollutants in their city/towns water supply...maybe some other members could post theirs also...

    Nitrite...10ppm
    Nitrate..10ppm
    Copper...1.3ppm
    Arsenic...10ppm
    just to name a few.

    Nitrates 10 ppm
    Nitrites 0.02 ppm
    copper 0.05 ppm
    Lead 3.1 ppb
    Chloramines 3.2 ppm
    Cyanide 30 ppb
    Radium 0.8 pCi/L

    I don't drink this.
