No worries. You will be fine. Your children may start say aint and yaw. No worries most everyone else does. Fact is water is pumped from the Yadkin to a couple of treatment plants. Winston Lake is a secondary supply.

I don't think it was meant that way, roncorey1.

At any rate, I think it behooves all of us to educate ourselves about what's going on around us, no?

And at the very least, the Yadkin Riverkeeper seems quite intent on educating people on what's going on with the river and their water ... not all of which is of a "don't worry yourself, everything's fine" kind of bent.

Great site: Yadkin Riverkeeper

Here's their Alcoa article: Alcoa Pollution: New documents available | Yadkin Riverkeeper
