I wish to add my voice to the growing number who have experienced adverse health effects from Chittenden Water District's water supply. I live in South Burlington, Vermont, and 4 family members (one of whom is a baby) and two house guests have had and continue to have rashes and gastrointestinal distress since the addition of chloromine to our household water. Only use of alternate water from another town relieves our condition.
At present, we cannot shower at home and must carry in drinking and cooking water. Please, authoriites, remove chloramine from our water supply, or provide unaffected water to our home.

Thank you MV Voice for continuing to bring this issue to the public.
I am one of those more than 400 Bay Area residents who has a toxic reaction to chloramine. Neither my dermatologist nor my allergist was able to diagnose the problem and it was only after going off tap water completely that the eczema that tormented me for over a year disappeared.
Please, medical personnel, take a look at this issue. Check out www.chloramine.org for more information and consider suggesting to those who are affected that they try eliminating tap water. Many people are suffering--I'm sure it's more than 400--and they don't know why.

Now with winter, we're supposed to by plain water for the humidifier so we don't poison our family while we're sleeping. Thank you Voice for your consistent message about chloramine.
