Fort White water safe to drink, state toxicologist say

Published 7/25/2008
Toxicologists from the Florida Department of Health did say that "sensitive populations," such as newborn babies, should use bottled water rather than Fort White town water.

The news from the Department of Health comes after nearly five years straight of failed water quality tests of the town's water. The town has been battling fluctuating levels of possibly cancer-causing byproducts in the water, regularly exceeding standards set by the state Department of Environmental Protection.
