Investigators Question the Safety of Buffalo’s Tap Water Including How It’s Being Tested
A news story this morning from WGRZ exposes a concern over the lead levels in Buffalo's tap water. Investigators are questioning whether Buffalo's tap water is fairly and correctly measured and if it's indeed safe for drinking.
The report reveals a concern over how levels were tested and that there may have been a conflict of interests regarding which homes were tested for lead levels. According to the report, the homes tested for lead were current or former city employees and their family members, many of whom worked in the Water Utility or Public Works Department.
