Drinking Water Information
Friends of the North Fork wants to help you make informed decisions about your drinking water.
On this page we list a number of articles and links that you can read to become more aware of the drinking water issues in our watershed as well as other water issues across the nation. We hope that you will find information that you can use and to help you and your family live a healthier life.
Our full report on the drinking water in the Shenandoah Valley is below for you to read in addition to the informational brochure that we mailed out to residents giving them information and advise for concerns about their home drinking water. Below is an excerpt of the report...
"This paper presents information on the manmade organic chemicals we found in the river, the potential for them to be present in our drinking water and the impact they may have on the river and our health. Many questions remain as to the long term impacts of manmade organic chemicals in the river. By keeping the community informed, we seek to create and maintain a public dialogue on this emerging environmental issue."
