California Drops Tough Chromium-6 Standard, Sara Jerome, August 16, 2017
The standard was dropped because the state "failed to properly consider the economic feasibility of complying."
Please realize that the decision was based on costs, and not what was best for the health of the people. if we do not know the health effects of chromium at these lower levels we may be arguing against our own best interests. Anecdotal information, as in, "I've consumed this water for 40 years and I'm fine," are not scientific and do not adequately address the health issues associated with our water. People who died early, perhaps due to water issues, are not here to tell their side of the story.

  1. Hauled water is illegal if you have a homestead cabin. I guess I will die of thirst.

  4. Wonder Valley is a awesome place to live ..But it comes with hard work and no matter how poor or how well to do we are, it's a must to keep our properties up and not become eye sores and respect the living out here in God's country and respect the creature's who lived here before us human's . We share our love, our food, our compassion with our neighbors and the animals and know the struggle out here is worth it. It wasnt easy for the cowboys and still this day isn't easy- but so worth it all !
