The City of Lake Traverse Consumer Confidence Report: City Water, by Roy C. Booth

In February 2035, the Minnesota Department of Health (MDH) began sampling selected municipal water supplies for an expanded list of enhancedperfluorochemicals (EPFCs) related to Class A firefighting and riot control foams. These systems were chosen based on the volume of reported use of such in training centers and the vulnerability of the wells. The City of Lake Traverse was one of those municipal water supplies.

The laboratory analysis noted trace amounts of EPFCs, which are below the health based exposure limit. Ongoing monitoring will continue as a public health action, however, especially with concerns of secondary mutations and the like.

Roy C. Booth is a published author, comedian, poet, journalist, essayist, screenwriter, and internationally awarded playwright with nearly 60 plays published (Samuel French, Heuer, et al) with nearly 800 productions worldwide in 29 countries in ten languages. Also known for collaborations with R Thomas Riley, Brian Keene, Eric M. Heideman, William F. Wu, and others (along with his presence on the regional convention circuit), Roy hails from Bemidji, MN where he also manages Roy’s Comics & Games. See his entry on Wikipedia for more.
