SF Drinking Water Now Without Hormones

Posted By on Tue, Mar 11, 2008 at 8:36 AM

SF residents will have to add their own estrogen to drinking water for now according to an article in today's Chronicle. Contrary to a report issued by the Associated Press yesterday, chemists who tested drinking water from 20 utilities nationwide said that they not detect a sex hormone in SF tap water.
The mistake apparently resulted from confusion over the waterworks foundation's laboratory test results conveyed by the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission to the Associated Press. The news service said it was looking into the matter.
Not only is our drinking water not full of crap according to the scientists, but they can't say enough nice things about it: "You guys have the best water that we tested. Period," Snyder said of San Francisco's drinking water. "I don't think we've ever tested drinking water that didn't have any of our target compounds in it." Claims that SF tap water flows directly from the glowing aura of Christ himself have been unsubstantiated.-Andy Wright

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
