Bottled Water


February 17, 2015

Residents in Gardena, CA are unhappy and unsatisfied with the smelly black water coming out of their home taps.

The Golden State Water Company held a public meeting to address the issue and residents brought samples of the black sludge “water.” (Can it truly be called water at this point?)

Kate Nutting, general manager of the southwest district of the Golden State Water Company told residents that the water is safe to drink, yet even one of the resident’s dogs will not drink from the toilet. In the long term, the water company plans to flush out the sediment from the pipes and replace old water mains.

According to the article from Eye Witness news, “Last month, tap water came out looking like used motor oil. At the time, the Golden State Water Company flushed the line and deemed the drinking water safe.”


Residents are worried about the risk of health for their family. Who wouldn’t be? Who would want to take a shower in black water? Now many residents are only drinking bottled water.

Let’s take a moment to send positive thoughts to these folks in Gardena that they may find a solution to this water crisis.
