Today's Waterloo Region Record carrys this story "A lot of us pee in the pool-and it's hurting our health". This story describes the unfortunate but ubiquitous reality of humans adding nitrogen/ammonia/urea to swimming pools and the then resultant chemical reaction with chlorine in the pool. The story focuses on nitrogen trichloramine and cyanogen chloride gas.

This evening at Woolwich Council (6pm) I will be discussing three different Woolwich communities and their water supply. Elmira and St. Jacobs are served by a pipeline that comes up from Waterloo. There are serious issues with that water supply as well as with the water supply in West Montrose. The Region of Waterloo are currently in a years long process to replace the drinking water system in West Montrose. The Region as is their habit are not being forthcoming as to the reasons why they are so doing. Apparently we will continue to limp along and "manage" the contaminated water coming from Waterloo. Politics and money are behind the decisions to keep citizens in the dark regarding health issues and our drinking water.
