Water Complaints

PEOPLE IN DENVER ARE STARTING TO COMPLAIN THAT *ASH POLLUTION* IS MAKING THEIR WATER TASTE DOWNRIGHT *NASTY.*
THE PROBLEM IS... RUNOFF FROM THE HAYMAN FIRE AREA.
RAIN CARRIES THE ASH AND DIRT RIGHT INTO CHEESMAN RESERVOIR...
AND THAT IS DENVER'S MAIN WATER SUPPLY.
THE WATER IS BEST-DESCRIBED AS *ASHY*.. *SMOKY*.. AND *SMELLY.* BUT DENVER WATER OFFICIALS SAY.. IT MEETS ALL SAFETY STANDARDS AND *IS* SAFE TO DRINK.
