Some homes in the district have so much lead in their water, it can be tasted. Tests for lead have found up to 48,000 parts per billion in some district homes, which is, shall we say, a significant percentage over the legal maximum of 15 parts per billion. No, not 15,000. 15. (Note to Orrin Hatch: I think I know a way to fix this problem. Guns for everyone!)
This certainly makes me reconsider my latest self-improvement initiative of drinking hydrating liquids. After spending the last 3 days chugging water and then peeing every 5 minutes, I think I might have to return to my steady diet of coffee and beer. A girl has to think about her health!
