Arsenic levels extremely high in water at mobile home park in Mont.

Friday, February 10, 2012

GREAT FALLS, Mont. — Residents of a mobile home park in the Great Falls, Mont. area have been warned not to drink their tap water because it contains arsenic four times higher than what is considered safe for human consumption, according to the Great Falls Tribune.

The mobile home park has also been dealing with poor quality water, a leak in the sewage treatment lagoon and low water pressure, noted the article.

“The water and sewer system out there is just really messed up,” said Don Feist, president of the Trailer Terrace Co-op and a resident of the contaminated mobile home park. “If you wash your clothes in it, they turn orange because the water is orange. We've gone on for years with just a trickle of water and a year ago last Christmas we had no water at all. That's what we woke up to on Christmas morning. Then we got a notice Sunday that we cannot drink the water because it has arsenic in it. The problems just aren't getting any better out there.”
