SD's Drinking Water 9th Worst of Major Cities
San Diego's drinking water is 9th worst among the 100 largest cities, according to the Environmental Working Group. In compiling the list, the group used water quality testing data from state health and environmental departments that compute records for water utilities and laboratories. Pensacola, Florida, has the worst water of the major cities. Arlington, Texas has the best. San Diego activist Mel Shapiro notes that this information has been around since last month, but mainstream media have not done their job giving it the coverage it deserves.
