Community meeting to discuss Bay Point Drinking Water Problems


April 30, 2007



Archived. This is an older press release from 2007 and may not contain the latest information. Please view our current press releases for 2014 items.



What

The public is invited to a community meeting to discuss drinking water quality issues in Bay Point. Contra Costa Health Services is holding the meeting at a restaurant and the first 75 people will receive free food.

When

6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 2.

Where

La Finca Restaurant, 706 Port Chicago Highway, Bay Point.

Why

Though Bay Point residents pay more for their drinking water than any other large community in East Contra Costa County, Bay Point doesn't receive fluoridated drinking water. Bay Point drinking water also has the highest level of disinfectant by-products in the service area, and long-term exposure to these contaminants can potentially cause cancer.
