Fallon, NV cancer cluster - 30 minutes from Fernley. Abnormally high tungsten levels present in the water and urine, leading the CDC to recommend the National Toxicology Program of the National Institutes of Health to begin reviewing existing literature and to begin toxicologic research of tungsten and tungsten compounds to determine their potential link to cancer in humans.

Water here is very bad, officially recommended that people with auto immune disorders DO NOT USE the city water. There is a law passed that people with wells can not use them, must only use city water, then they say you shouldn't use the city water either.

High Arsenic and bacteria levels are normal. Absolute minimum standards are maintained. We use bottled water. Big cover ups here about the water due to the dependence on tourists. I suggest you have your own water tests done, they NEVER match what the official reports are, always much, much worse.

Not to mention the Bond Debt Assessment fees they've passed on to homeowners recently.

The water treatment here failed the quality tests every year til 2011, but was never fined, always got extensions. I had the same concerns as you before we moved here, contacted the water plant and city officials personally, they didn't even know what tests they were supposed to be doing, didn't know where the past tests were, nor who to contact to assess them. I bought a house with a well, not knowing about the law that said I couldn't use it, even though the city water couldn't pass - sigh.

Today, in Fernley we also have a very high sulphur (rotten eggs) smell in the water.

I grew up in Fernley now that I am 39 I have IBS, Diverticulosis, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, chronic infections, seizures, migraines, a calcified spleen, a barely working liver, a nevus growing insidemy left eye's retina on a vein, and I lost my gallbladder and appendix before the age of 32. My sister has Hashimotos disease. I feel like I have been sick my whole life. My advice, but bottled water and get out of Nevada.

Get tested for Celiac Disease!
I too was sick my whole life until 1982 when a gastroenterologist diagnosed me with Celiac & Hashimoto's.
