"Firm charged in tainted water case" by Associated Press | September 16, 2008
OSSIPEE, N.H. - The water company in Tamworth has been charged with knowingly delivering water to customers that was contaminated with uranium.
Lakes Region Water has 1,606 customers scattered around Campton, Conway, Freedom, Gilford, Laconia, Moultonborough, Ossipee, Tamworth, Thornton, Tuftonboro, and Wolfeboro, according to the Public Utilities Commission's website.
Separately, some residents in Tamworth are suing the company based on a monthlong fecal bacteria scare in summer 2007. The suit says businesses, including two inns, lost customers last August because the water was contaminated.
JoAnne Rainville, a nurse who is one of the plaintiffs, said people do not know how long they had been drinking the contaminated water.
"Obviously it's a health concern. The water was polluted with high levels of uranium and arsenic," she told the Conway Daily Sun. "People right now are living under a kind of a shadow of what are the long-range effects."
Ask an Iraqi or Afghani about the effects of depleted uranium.
Hell, ask a U.S. soldier!!!!
Yup, don't dreenk the water when you go to A-meer-iKa!!!!
