Besides arsenic, manganese, and lead, they have now found Glyphosate (also known as Round-Up) in our drinking water. While the city continues to pour millions of our tax dollars down the drain, building more wells, and ignoring the obvious: White Rock well water is unhealthy and we need to switch to Metro Vancouver water as recommended by Fraser Health back in 2013.
In case you did not know, Glyphosate in high doses has been shown to cause cancer with high probability, and there is some evidence that it is also linked to gene mutations, which are also a possible cause of Cancer. Risk associated with low doses of Glyphosate are still unclear.
Shouldn’t our Mayor and Council warn us about this risk in our drinking water? Why is Fraser Health being silent on this? What should White Rock do about this? The answer is clear: we need to switch to safe and clean Metro Vancouver drinking water now!

What is our water doing to our homes? This is a picture of the inside of the water pipes heading into a local Condo building from the Water Meter.
The pipe in these pictures was nearly blocked by the vast amounts of brown sludge coming into it from White Rock’s water supply! As water rushing through this tiny gap, it picks up this sludge and it ends up in your water heater, and in your water glass.
If this damages hot water heaters, what is it doing to your health?
It is important that Strata owners and single family home owners have their pipes inspected, and take a sample of this sludge and have it analyzed by Exova in North Surrey. Document the levels of Arsenic, Manganese, Lead, and Bacteria (if any).
Know what you are drinking!
Have your Water Meter pipes inspected, and take a sample of any deposits you find. Have your water and this sludge checked by an Independent Lab such as Exova in North Surrey.
If you have health concerns about our water, the Fraser Health Board is meeting this June 16th. You can submit a question about your water to the Fraser Health board online here. The deadline for submitting questions is 4 PM, Tuesday June 13th.
Residents have been told that their brown water is caused by pipes within their own building, but does anyone think it is credible that hundreds of different buildings would simultaneously have the same brown water issue independently. Neither do we!
The city has received well over 500 complaints about brown water. Seems far more likely that the City is at fault. What is in this water, and is it safe to drink? It is time to call Fraser Health and demand that we find out what is in our water and what they are going to do about cleaning it up. Fraser Health needs to make Mayor Baldwin and City Council clean up our drinking water now, by connecting us up to Vancouver Metro water as Fraser Health recommended in 2013. You can read about Fraser Health’s recommendation here.
