Are black solids polluting your well water?

Are black solids polluting your well water?

Would you like to know what those black solids are made of?

Would you like to know if the black solids are black shale?
🚩Unfortunately the truth is, the MOECC (Ministry of Environment & Climate Change) and the Chatham-Kent Municipality simply do not test the black solids to tell you what they are.

🤔So how is this science? So how is this looking for a health hazard given that a health hazard defined under the Ontario Protection and Promotion Act can be a substance, thing, plant or animal other than man or a solid, liquid, gas or combination of any of them; that has or that is likely to have an adverse effect on the health of any person.

If you have black solids polluting your well water, contact Water Wells First because we are actually testing the black solids to see if black shale is confirmed present.

So why would you care if you have black shale polluting your water supply?

You would care because black shale has been recognized as an environmental hazard.

See for yourself by opening the PDF document called “Black Shale as an Environmental Hazard”
http://www.waterwellsfirst.org/we-need-everyone-to-help-us…/

It is a proven fact that black shale contains heavy metals such as arsenic, mercury, lead, uranium.

So, would you not expect Doctor Colby – Chief Medical Officer for Chatham-Kent to investigate complaints of black solids polluting water wells in Chatham-Kent?

And even more, would you not also expect Doctor Colby – Chief Medical Officer for Chatham-Kent to investigate these black solids for any potential carcinogenic effects, over daily long term exposure?

Would you not expect our municipality to ask questions about the black solids that are now polluting water wells in Dover and Chatham Townships. We are talking about black shale entering drinking water supplies. There is nothing frivolous about this. Our children and grandchildren deserve safe water and proper diligence from our officials.

Do you think if you are on a water line that you are immune to this problem. Think again!

Everyone in this municipality who uses water or pays a property tax bill is affected by this.

Help us and yourself by asking these questions to Mayor Hope (email randyhope@chatham-kent.ca) and Council (email council@chatham-kent.ca) that we at Water Wells First asked to Chatham-Kent Municipality on Oct 30th 2017.

On the record Water Wells First on Oct 30th 2017 asked the Municipality to invite Dr. Colby to a Water Wells First public meeting to be held Nov 7th 2017 at 7pm at Country View Golf Club.

Dr Colby we ask you to attend to further explain your opinions that you shared with the public at the North Kent Wind public meeting that was held in Pain Court recently.

🤔Dr Colby can you please also bring the studies and test results for any or all of the claims you made at the recent Pain Court meeting.
