Just a few hours after we posted Of Low Water Pressure, Sucking Taps And Herbicide In Barbados, Vancouver Canada declared an emergency due to contamination of the city’s drinking water supply. Two million people are now at risk and have to boil their drinking water.
The circumstances of Vancouver’s contamination appear to be different from that discussed in our article, but the overall message is the same: a clean water supply is serious business that deserves serious attention and adequate funding from government.
Let’s hope the goats are now being kept away from the water reservoirs on Barbados.
