Re: “Acid river

Maybe you should understand the water treatment process before commenting on Stellarton's water quality. The "nasty cancer causing stuff" as you call it are DPBs, Disinfection Byproducts, a result of adding chlorine and other disinfectants to drinking water to make it safe for human consumption. Almost all water treatment processes produce some DPBs, though the levels in the Stellarton do exceed guideline levels any health risk is minimal. The most concerning DPB is THM, a byproduct of chlorine breaking down organic material in the water, but THMs and DPBs in general are only of concern if ingested in large quantities over a long period of time, and can be easily removed with a household carbon or charcoal filter.

So please do your research before talking about something you don't understand.
