Safe drinking water

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

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 feedback@yourcallradio.org. 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.
