The City of Trenton’s efforts to build a renaissance, which would encourage former residents to relocate back into the city has just taken a giant step backwards. To be sure, things have been bad for years for with Trenton’s residents having to fear for their safety when stepping outside their own homes, and also having to deal with a broken education system. Now, along comes the news about Trenton’s drinking water being discolored.
No one should be forced to drink purple or pink water coming from their spigots. Something is seriously wrong at the Trenton Water Works and, regardless of whatever spin is put out by the Department of Environmental Protection, customers of the Trenton Water Works have a right to be concerned that the chemicals placed in the water can lead to serious health issues.
The mayor needs to put his renaissance plan on hold. What he needs to do is fix the problems at the Trenton Water Works, even if it means issuing pink slips (not pink water) to the personnel responsible for allowing the drinking water to become discolored. Let’s be honest - who wants to move into Trenton when water coming from the Trenton Water Works is purple, pink, or any other color? — Clear Water, Please

I’m trying to get waterworks to explain to me why my meter reader was out here in early October, and it is now early December and I’ve yet to receive a bill so I can pay on my water usage. — A reader
I think you should call the waterworks to ask that, we can get your bill here at the newsroom. — Ed Note
