Letter: Williston water reports a sham

From what most people are saying about Williston, N.D., drinking or bathing in its municipal water supply could be hazardous to your health.

On my trips out to Williston, not only have I had to double-wash the frack-fluid from the sides of my car (of course, spills are minimized, according to the media reports), but the local tap water also has the taste of petroleum in it. Some have even reported lighting their taps on fire because of natural gas leakage into the water, similar to the movie “Gasland.”

I’m glad I haven’t had to shower in that town.
