An Associated Press investigation has discovered the presence of many kinds of drugs in the drinking water supply across much of the country.
Mesa County was not involved in the investigation and Ute Water, who serves more than 80,000 customers in the grand valley, says its drinking water is clean.
Ute Water and the City of Grand Junction both get water from the Grand Mesa. Neither test for pharmaceuticals because it is not regulated by the E.P.A. They say the water is pure and untainted.
Unless the EPA regulations change, Ute Water says they have no plans to test for prescription drugs in its water.
