Campus, surrounding areas use treated city water
As we’ve told you here before, a study by our own John Luczaj is making headlines around the area, after Luczaj, colleague Michael Zorn and others discovered significant levels of strontium in well water samples collected nearby. For the record, the UW-Green Bay campus is on city (treated) water, not well water, so those levels shouldn’t be of concern to folks here. Green Bay city water, Luczaj assures us, has low strontium and is some of the best water in the country. “None of the municipal water customers in Green Bay, Town of Scott, Ashwaubenon or the Central Brown County Water Authority (six other communities) should have any issues with strontium because they use lake water,” Luczaj said. What’s more, even moderate strontium levels shouldn’t affect adults, whose teeth are done developing. For more on the study, check out our previous post.
