Okay, it’s not that bad. But it sure is odd.
Savannah water officials have discovered trace amounts of four pharmaceuticals, an insect repellent and a synthetic musk in a portion of the city’s water supply.
None of the compounds found is regulated for in-tap water, and there’s no indication they pose a health risk at the levels detected, said John Sawyer, Savannah water supply and treatment director.
Only the city’s surface water was tested. That’s water drawn from Abercorn Creek, a tributary of the Savannah River, and treated at the Industrial and Domestic plant. The plant supplies residential customers in Port Wentworth, Pooler and Effingham County.
