City of Pembroke Pines, FL Needs To Meet Federal Water Standards
The city government of Pembroke Pines, FL led by Mayor Frank Ortis is resisting the recommendations of the EPA to effectively clean the cities water supply based on the findings of the EPA. The two contaminants out of compliance are TTHM and HAA5. The EPA has offered 3 possible solutions to bring the city's water into compliance. However, the city has chose to implement a $2.7 million project (ionic exchange unit (filter)) to simply make the water "clearer". This does nothing for the safety of the citizenry of Pembroke Pines. The purpose of this petition is to urge the City of Pembroke Pines to utilize the recommendations of the EPA.
