on Toxic Water?
.06 parts per billion? Are you kidding me? Do your research people, there is no way they can test accurately to those levels. I am all for safe drinking water, but this Environmental Working Group is an alarmist organization. Chromium, as well as Uranium, Plutonium, Arsnic, Lead, Baruim, and many other harmful contaminants exist naturally in water that comes from the earth, it's just a fact.
If you do nothing else, please look at how small .06 parts per billion actually is. It's .00000001% so .06 ppb would be .000000006%! Here are some other representations:
1 part per billion is equal to:
1 penny in 10 million dollars
1 second in 32 years
1 foot of a trip to the moon
1 blade of grass on a football field
1 drop of water in an Olympic-size swimming pool
1 square in a roll of toilet paper stretching from New York to London
