An informed opinion on chlorine

Tuesday July 16, 2019 Published in Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor,


I am against the chlorination of our water. I have tasted chlorine in drinking water in New Zealand and dislike the smell and taste of it, it’s horrible.


If our government wants to put this terrible stuff in our water, then only put it into the water drinking stations around the island, not into our taps and pipes into our households.

Then those who want it chlorine in their water can go to the water stations; those of us who don’t want chlorine can have natural water into our homes that we can boil ourselves when we want to.
