On Tuesday, December 20th Dr. Oz interviewed the USEPA Administrator Lisa Jackson. Dr. Oz has a talk-show program that airs on ABC affiliates and the program segment Tuesday was titled, What's in Your Drinking Water?" A 30-second teaser for the program indicated that arsenic would be among the contaminanats of focus.
Kathy Cooper, Superintendent of the RMU Water and Wastewater Division reports that "the City's water supply is tested regularly and the arsenic levels are below the EPA's maximum contaminant level goal" (MCLG).
