    Seems that the EPA had warned them in Feb and June that their water system had serious issues that would result in major problems, which they chose to ignore.

    Oopsie!
    Greetings, SMTA.

    Do you know why the city ignored the warnings? Was it a matter of not enough money available to correct the problem? Hard to understand why it was not a priority, though, since we must have a certain amount of water to drink daily to stay alive. From what I've been reading, that water wasn't safe to drink even after boiling - scary stuff in that water there! Strange...

    No idea - just saw an article about the timing of the warnings.
