Facts you should Know
KHOU-TV has discovered that for
decades the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality has under-reported many
of these radiation readings to utilities and their communities. This
under-reporting took place for all radioactive contaminants in drinking water
(known as radionuclides) and did not stop until 2009, after an EPA audit. Hence,
the above raw readings may not match those found in the annual water quality
report, called a Consumer Confidence Report, you receive from your water
In addition, you may actually have more alpha activity and other forms of
radiation in your water than what your annual water report states, because of
rules set up by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Specifically, the EPA
instructs the nation’s water systems not to include in its “gross” alpha
readings the radiation in your water that comes from radioactive uranium, even
though uranium gives off radioactive alpha particles. Consequently, uranium
readings are subtracted from the raw alpha particle activity you may see
reported above, before the readings are reported to you.
Many water systems in Texas and across America come very close to achieving the
federally recognized public health goal for ionizing radiation in drinking
water, which is set at zero (This is called the MCLG). The EPA maintains there
is a “zero threshold” allowance for ionizing radiation in your drinking water
as it pertains to potential health concerns. This is different than other MCLGs
the EPA set for other contaminants such as selenium, copper, fluoride or even
chlorine residuals in water (these MCLGs are set above zero).
The EPA has also set a “legal” limit, which it calls the MCL (maximum contaminant
limit) above zero for radioactive materials. That legal limit is the amount of
radiation that could trigger enforcement action, and scientists caution that
having amounts below that limit in your water does not mean there are no known
adverse health effects that may arise. It is important to note, the presence of
radiation in your water does not mean you will definitely develop a health
problem or cancer. The TCEQ argues it takes a certain level of exposure over a
period of 70 years for the typical levels of radiation found to create an
impact on human health. Other environmental scientists and toxicologists maintain that
any amount of exposure does immediately increase your risk for illness or, in rare cases, developing
cancer. The more exposure you get, they argue, the greater your chances of
developing a health problem. While all radionuclides have different risk
exposures, the EPA set its Maximum Contaminant Limit for items such as uranium
at 30 micrograms/liter of water. The EPA has said that a community that is exposed to uranium
in its drinking water at the level of the MCL, over a lifetime of drinking water, “will typically
correspond to a lifetime radiogenic cancer risk of slightly less than one in
10,000." That calculation does not take into effect if a person is exposed
to other radionuclides or carcinogenic contaminants in their water.

OUR NEW NAME
A request in 2008 by Primo Water to build a bottling plant in Houston, Texas and serve the “retail” (stores) in the area was accepted and “Primo Houston” was started. Following some hectic years where the presence of Primo was rapidly expanding Primo Houston started seeking customers in the home and office market segment under the Primo brand name…a condition allowed under the original agreement. Joe Brunson was brought on board to head this effort. By this time most of the original Primo team in North Carolina had left and the new management was unaware of the clause in the contract. Upon becoming aware of Primo Houston’s activities in the non “retail” market Primo canceled our contract and demanded we no longer offer product under the Primo label. Thus was Strias Waters resurrected as our continuing brand. The product is the same as produced under the Primo Houston label and the marketing and service activities are the same and will be continued going forward. Joe has assumed full authority for managing Strias and future growth will be under his guidance.
