Updated EWG water test results — even Meadview is listed

The Environmental Working Group just released its 2019 UPDATE to water testing.

Amazingly, they even include Meadview’s Joshua Valley Water Company. And of course it’s the same water we drink in water haul.


“Serves: 957” — how do they know?  They couldn’t be talking about homes, right?  We don’t have that many people.

I’m really glad I got my Berkey, but I’m sad for the many people who don’t have a really good water purifier.

And I keep thinking how it can be that we have so many nitrates and all these pesticides, glyphosate etc., not in huge quantities, but considering that it could ONLY be contaminate our aquifer through RAIN — how much water is in our aquifer?

Many of these chemicals are fairly new, 20 – 30 years, I just can’t see how we can have any detectable amounts just from rain in the last 30 or so years, UNLESS there’s not a lot of water in our aquifer.  They say it’s going down a foot a year, but nobody knows how many feet we have.



KINGMAN is in trouble!

I posted about the Golden Valley and Kingman EXTREMELY high Chromium-6 levels last year:


Our supervisor Jean Bishop couldn’t care less.
Here’s an interesting 2016 article:

Chromium-6: ‘Erin Brockovich’ chemical threatens two-thirds of Americans

And nobody cares.

I realize that it’s expensive to get these chemicals out of our water.  But if it’s too pricey to filter the water, why not AT LEAST warn the residents so they can buy systems to clean their water?

And maybe provide FREE purifying systems to people living in poverty?

  1. I have been in a battle with MT. Tipton water company over theyre continued theft from the people the serve on Mt. TIPTONS water company. Not to mention the fact they keep dumping chemicals into the water supply WITH NO TESTING DONE.

    • Michelle, all drinking water has to be tested once a month, but only for bacteria. The real tests are done by the state. Have you looked them up?

      And regarding the “theft”, I got $500 from Frontier after I sued them in 2015 for billing fraud and I just submitted a complaint to the AZ AG because apparently they didn’t refund the OTHER customers, and owe me for a year or so too.

      You just need to prove it.

  2. It’s interesting how the levels of contaminants go up the farther from the Colorado River and as the weather travels south. It is pretty clear that the contaminants are coming from towns or companies/ businesses /and or homes. Are there any mining, or chemical production companies in any towns? I’m sad because I was considering purchasing property in Meadview but now I’m not sure it’s safe. Thank you for all your work. Even if the local people can’t yet apppreciate it, this information has helped me.

    • Deirdre, sorry for the late approval (due to spam the first post is moderated), been so busy with spring planting I missed your comment.

      Deirdre, there’s NO place that I know of where the water isn’t contaminated. This is a GLOBAL issue, the toxins are in the rain, snow, air …

      Our drinking water is still MUCH better than Las Vegas or any of the towns that get water from the Colorado / Lake Mead. The problem is that most people here don’t care about TOMORROW — dimwitted Trump-loving idiots who couldn’t care less about the planet, our climate and the FUTURE.

      Sadly, Meadview is run by hedonists and investors, determined to call Meadview “paradise” — primarily to reap the real estate profits. And the people who DO care are afraid of them and don’t speak out.

      If the PEOPLE who run Meadview, and especially the people running the Meadview News weren’t such imbeciles it would be a fantastic place to live.
