SOMETHING IN OUR WATER We live in Merced, California, and water I have bottled to use out in our cabana/coffee house over a short period of time has developed a substance resembling toilet paper in the water. These are sealed containers, and the water source is our tap water that has been filtered through a countertop 10-stage filtration system whose filter is always replaced on a regular basis. I have tried to contact the UC Merced chem labs, and the Merced Sun Star newspaper about the problem, but the local newspaper is always unreachable except for their delivery service complaint department that is answered by somebody in a foreign country. Their news room is never available even though they are the main artery here in Central California for liberal, anti Trump news that consists mainly of out of state columns and articles that are clearly anti-Trump, anti-Republican in nature.
Hello everyone, I appreciate the work you do to save our environment! I would like to tell you all about the website Film Festival Flix, it is an awesome new site that houses films from film festivals. I would like to recommend a documentary film More Than Honey. It is a revealing documentary, and it tells us about the troubles honey bees are facing. I saw this film on the festival flix website, and they have a great selection of films to choose from. I recommend going to their site, and looking at all the films they have to offer.
JUST SAW THIS- COMMON SENSE- "Public Advised to NOT Flush Disinfecting Wipes, Paper Towels Down Toilet – Throw Them Away Instead" BUT THE WATER TREATMENT PLANTS SHOULD GO AFTER THE COMPANIES THAT ARE ADVERTISING FLUSHABLE WIPES SINCE IT IS FALSE ADVERTING.
