JACKSONVILLE, Fla.-- Joan Stringfellow has lived in Jacksonville nearly 30 years. She uses large amounts of water each day, and has a strong opinion about it.
"Some mornings I get up and take my morning dose of medication and there's a strong chlorine taste," she said.
The website 24/7 Wall Street claims there's more in it than that. According to its study, 23 toxic chemicals were found in Jacksonville's water supply.
Arsenic and lead were some of the agents listed.
"I certainly am concerned about it. I've seen JEA's reports and I've always relied on them to be accurate," Stringfellow said.
JEA representatives say the study is unvalidated and wrong.
"I want to ensure to all our customers that the water is safe," spokeswoman Gerri Boyce said.
JEA's water source is the Floridan Aquifer. Because it's a natural resource, it does contain some occuring minerals -- which according to the company, are all within required EPA regulations.
Stringfellow says she hopes so and prays the accusations die down.
"You want to know and especially, I think, young mothers would be extremely concerned about it."
JEA says if there's ever a question about your water or you want them to check things out, give them a call.
