“I think it’s unfortunate that the water quality is not good, but I think it’s great that they’re taking measures to test it.” Karen Buchanan

“I work at the hospital. At one point, I actually went to a conference and I opened the tap up and poured myself a glass of water. It was slightly brown. I drank it, immediately threw up. It was awful. From now on, I tell people don’t drink from it. If we give patients water, I always take it from filtered water in our staff room. The taps there are terrible - it really needs to be looked at. There’s so much grunge and minerals, it’s totally clouded. If people could look into that, it would be wonderful, because it’s definitely an issue. I feel bad for unsuspecting people who don’t know how bad the water is there.” Rachel Latimer

“That’s good they’re doing that then.” Bill Tucker

“We have a filter on my tap. It’s just moss, it comes through somehow somewhere. We still drink it, it’s fine. Unless there’s a reason to worry, someone will let us know. No need to panic.” Trevor Keyzer
