Pharmaceuticals found in drinking water of 24 major US cities

Story here.

I read this piece and ask myself “is this a big story” or is it something that’s coming from the world of hyperbole and scaremongering?

I mean, bottled water has received a pretty bad rap of late, right? If most cities aren’t considering some kind of bottled water levy, they should be. For starters, it’s a great source of revenue. And for those companies that are just scooping the water from city taps and bottling it, it would be a great way to recoup some of the infrastructure costs that companies are taking advantage of. Finally, it would really put a sting on a product that has a price per litre that outranks the cost of a litre of gas.
