I don't begrudge them that, but when will Goleta Beach be bacteria, chemical and fecal matter free and safe to use again? Hot weather is coming. This part of town doesn't have full-house climate control.

Water standards are arbitrary and there is little scientific evidence that "safe" drinking water is indeed "safe" over the long term. Our water is loaded with chlorine which can promote cancer causing elements produced by sunlight's interaction with the chlorine. Chlorine itself can be cancer causing. Be health wise and only drink filtered water, especially for your children's sake.

Yes, water quality standards around the country are adjusted to conform to the available water. The chlorine smell is caused by the byproducts (such as chloramines and trihalomethanes) of chlorine reacting with organic materials . These are indeed very unhealthful. In Europe, they disinfect water with ozone which is safe, effective. Neither chlorine nor fluoride should ever be added to water. The fluoride used by many municipalities is a toxic waste product of the chemical industry.It would be very expensive to send it to a waste site, the old addage, "dilution is the solution to pollution". More and more municipalities are recognizing this and halting its' use. SB does not add fluoride, but contains fluoride from natural geologic sources.
