City of Deerfield Beach to Residents: Let Them Drink Vodka!!!

Well, City of Deerfield Beach Management and Staff strike again.  I don't know if you received this notice or if the City mailed the residents this notice.  

However,  everyone that I have talked to had no idea about this possible health hazard within our City's drinking water.  

If you notice the announcement indicates that "some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in the drinking water than the general public."

I just love the bit in the below public notice which states:

"Even though these were not emergencies you, as customers, have the right to know what happened and what we did to correct this."
If you didn't properly test the water according to Federal and State mandated guidelines (mandates that are in place to basically provide "some" protection to consumers, so we don't die by drinking poisonous water), how could you possibly know that it is not an emergency?????

So, I would like to thank City Manager, Burgess Hanson, for looking out for the residents health and well-being.

It is nice to know that the City of Deerfield Beach cares so much for our health and much so they want to grant us the option to purchase alcoholic beverages on Sunday's before 12pm.

I think with this health risk in the City of Deerfield Beach's water that would be a good idea because I will just start drinking Vodka, instead of water from Deerfield Beach.

Or maybe i'll just go to Boca or Pompano to get my water.

Apparently, this notice appeared in the Sun-Sentinel???

I do know that on Feb 23, 2012, the City of Deerfield Beach announced that 2 new water processing plants came online within the City, which can be read here, and apparently the City is seeking damages against the company who built them for delaying the completion and not bringing them online.

Why the City of Deerfield Beach along with local news media thought the above story was more important than an actual story advising us about the potential health risk the City had put its residents in, potential lawsuits against businesses who utilize City water in production of goods, as well as visitors and guest to our fair hamlet by not only not testing our drinking water (it's only S. Florida, right), but then not warning us and then not telling us for over a year and when it finally did come out they put a little notice in the Sun-Sentinel seemingly hoping that no one would notice, while they came in compliance with the law.  

Now, I have already stated that I know the City hates compliance with the law...

This is just another blatant example of how they (City Management, Staff, and those damn Commissioners) spend more time trying to circumvent the laws of the land to fit their own nefarious needs to hide their misdeeds.

Hey that rhymes!!!

Just so you know how these chemicals affect humans I have taken the liberty and researched it for you:

Dibromochloropropane (DBCP)In mammals it causes male sterility at high levels of exposure. After discovery of its deleterious health effects on humans, the compound was banned from use in 1979 by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The continuing presence of the chemical as a contaminant in ground water remains a problem for many communities for years after end of use. Info can be read here.

Ethylene dibromide (EDB) -is not known to cause birth defects in humans.  Although, swallowing EDB has caused death at 40 mL doses. Info can be read here.

AsbestosSome people who drink water containing asbestos well in excess of the maximum contaminant level (MCL) for many years may have an increased risk of developing benign intestinal polyps. Info can be read here.

So, thanks Charles Debrusco, Burgess Hanson, Peggy Noland, Bill Ganz and the rest of the brain-less trust that forced us to pay an additional 10% Utility tax last yeafor possibly contaminated water that has the potential to make us sick, sterile, or kill us.

If we're healthy enough we'll remember this when we go to the polls.

BTW...I looked on the City website for this notice and I could not locate it...You would think it would be there, right....Guess the City didn't think it was important enough to post to keep the public informed.


I expect a full page ad in the Observer this Thursday...with your explanation for this one...make it a good one.

The doozy of a whopper you spit out in the April 12, 2012 Observer against "the resident" who is the former Mayor of Deerfield Beach for over 13 years, Jean Robb, was so full of exaggerations and spin that I thought I was reading an ad for Burger King.  

So suffice it to say, knowing you folks as I do, I have to believe the former MayoJean Robb.  At least she has never lied to me, lied about me, or spun the truth to put herself in a more positive light.  To me, she has more credibility when she breaks wind, passes gas, cuts the cheese, oflatulates (farts for the more vulgar crowd-this means you Chaz Stevens and Bill Ganz) than you people ever did in your whole tenure as elected officials.
