Today on Your Call: How safe is your drinking water?

Apr 11, 2012

On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation about what’s in our water. In Tulare County, one of the poorest counties in California, the State Water Resources Control Board found that 75% of the wells tested contained at least one contaminant over the legal limit.  Do you know what’s in your drinking water?   Join us at 10 or email What chemicals should we be most concerned about?  Are filters necessary? And how do they work? It’s Your Call with Rose Aguilar, and You.
