Activated carbon is much better than the sand water filter that they have been using since the 40's, it still will not remove the vast majority of contaminants in the water, and a <a href="***********aquasafecanada****/store/water-filters">water filter</a> should be installed in the home that will remove more than what the filtration plant will.

Time will tell the truth when the summer green water is being treated. That will be the real test in my book. I still have to wonder how many ground chemicals from all the years of farming are being filtered out? You would most likely not smell or taste them.

Fairmont water is a vast improvement over what it has been. At least it isn't Northrop water. Even with a water softener it doesn't do much. Half the time it smells like rotten eggs, and you have to let the water run for a bit to get most of the rust out of the line before you can use it.

Yeah, cuz that filter on your sink is what really does the trick, not all the real filters and processes at the new treatment plant. It tastes and smells fine if people quit trying to convince themselves otherwise.

As far as I am concerned the water still taste bad and still smells like a swimming pool. I do not drink or cook with the water tell it goes threw a filter on my sink first. Big waste of my tax dollars!!!!!!!!!!!
