I don't think anyone is disputing the fact that stuff has been found in the water, this happened how many years ago?
I actually have not read the most recent test data yet, but if it follows prior results, I'd have to say when you have non-naturally occurring compounds with no established safety limits, It would seem foolish to claim it is safe (but that is probably why the EPA hasn't said safe but uses does not exceed safety limits - as there are none...)
Also, I have a copy of a letter from Dawn Loven, Toxicologist to Rich Fetzer, OSC Eastern Response Branch which deals with Chromium levels being detected at twice the safety limit - after filtration, which poses an excess cancer risk. That however is if it is the Hexavalent form of Chromium and not the Trivalent form. The letter does state that it is not known which form of chromium they are dealing with. This is a sample taken on May, 24th 2012 from HW04. HW04 is one of the houses that the EPA has said they are working on a schedule to disconnect the alternative water supply.
Sorry, but that just doesn't sound safe to me.
