Drugs in Dallas Water?

A recent story about prescription drugs found in public water sparked my curiousity. Dallas water was not mentioned in any of the stories. I dutifully sent an open records request to the City of Dallas. I asked for any information on drugs, legal or illegal, in the Dallas Water supply.

The response- We don’t know. Dallas Water Utlities has never checked for these “unregulated compounds.” As much as I support legalizing drugs, I do not want birth control, lithium or heroin in my drinking water. On the plus side, next time a client on probation fails a drug test I can blame DWU.

For now, I’m sticking with Topo Chico.
