This, from my pal, James who lives on Springdale…
“We had a test done a year ago now after a neighbour across the street
clocked in at 14 ppb. We tested at 7 ppb, which was still cause for concern,
according to the lab, which said people really shouldn’t be drinking
anything more than 1 ppb. Our son was not quite one and a half at the time,
so we informed our pediatrician, who immediately requested that we have his
blood tested. Fortunately, everything turned out fine.
I have tried to contact the city to follow up on our spot on the wait list,
but cannot even get the woman I was told to contact (Mary: 416-392-7673)return my messages, let alone answer the phone.
Needless to say, we’re a little frustrated. If more people had their water
tested, than perhaps we could apply a little pressure to have this work done
en masse, instead of piecemeal, which is how it is being done now.
I encourage people to get the test done and then urge their neighbours to do
