Real Time Monitoring of Water Supplies

If technology could monitor water in real time, we’d know immediately about all the gunk that is in the water coming out of our taps.
Just the thought of what happens to be present in our water supply is pretty scary – chemicals so toxic that they build up over time and do us a lot of harm. Think anything from cancer to contracting diseases. Unfortunately, there are still a great many people who aren’t aware that their taps deliver contaminated water. The "only" thing that will combat contaminated water most effectively is water distillation systems.
Recently, the news carried grim warnings about a chemical called atrazine being found in the water in Illinois, Maryland, Florida, Ohio and Texas. Atrazine is a weed killer and its presence in drinking water is causing a lot of concern about people’s health. It’s been banned in the European Union because they feel it is contaminating their water.
Here is the other problem being dealt with in Illinois (and in other states) – atrazine isn’t something that is even tested for in water supplies on a regular basis. It’s a frightening fact that many local water districts only test their water annually, which raises the question about what people are drinking in between testing periods.
People with water distillation systems don’t need to worry about toxic chemicals in their water. Frankly, water distillers have been overlooked in favor of filtration systems with charcoal that just do not work effectively. The only effective way to get fresh water is to use water distillation systems.
While the weed killer manufacturer claims their product is effective and safe and does not pose a problem for drinking water supplies, they don’t let on that EPA standards set an annual average. This means that daily averages have the potential (and often do) to go beyond not only acceptable limits, but beyond safe limits. Although the real question is perhaps people wanting to know how could "any" level of weed killer in the water be "safe?" On the other side of the coin is that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention feel atrazine is deadly and causes liver, heart and kidney damage in animals.
Perhaps there are some questions about how it affects humans, but there is no question that atrazine (which is highly soluble) is washed from sprayed fields and finds its way into streams, rivers and wells, eventually making its way into our water supply and into our drinking glasses.
