Vog, sometimes you are brilliant in your analysis (minor league ballpark), sometimes your not (aquifer storage). This is one of those times.
The water going into the aquifer comes from Sweeney water treatment plant and is drinkable. In fact, it comes from the Westbrook water tower. If it wasn't going into the ground, folks would be drinking it immediately.
The gentleman in the story is drinking existing ground water from his well. The real question should be why is a guy living right next to a water tower living in the city limits drinking irrigation well water? Me thinks he is part of the 95/98 Wilmington City annexation, and got missed, or has deliberately flown under the radar. And now, it's CFPUA's fault?
If you saw the story on WWAY..well let's just say I wouldn't be drinking from any faucet in that house.
