(Source) The Village of Deerfield has issued an order for all residents to boil their water before drinking it after finding fecal coliform in the village water supply today, according to a village news release. Deerfield water department employees are investigating the problem, the release said, and will run 10 tests over the next 24 hours to determine when the water is safe to drink again without boiling. Fecal coliform is a bacteria that indicates the water was contaminated with human or animal waste, which can cause illness, the release said. Deerfield residents should bring water to a boil, allow it to boil for one minute, then let it cool, the release said. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking, making ice, washing dishes, brushing teeth, and food preparation — until further notice. Fecal coliform contamination can cause diarrhea, headaches, nausea, cramps and other symptoms, the release said. It’s particularly dangerous for infants, young children and people with compromised immune systems.
For the record, I still think tap water is the only way to go. It builds character. None of this soft Dasani or Aquafina shit. You want to grow up and be strong and have a resilient immune system? You drink water directly from the source. So what if it means you’ll be taking in trace amounts of poop and diarrhea. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger. Tap water for life.
Honest question. If I go up to Deerfield and drink all of their water right in their face without boiling it they have to make me Mayor right? Can’t get more macho than that. Just walk into town center with my sombrero on, chugging poopy water, waiting for everyone to suck my dick. Pretty sure that’s how it works. You think a little poop scares me? I eat poop for breakfast.
