So. Dear LJ Genie:
What kind of stuff gets into water in a situation like this? Adam drank a glass of water with dinner, because we are not a civilized city and thus there is no phone warning; he found the note about the main break tootling around the web after dinner.
So now he is concerned about what toxins and parasites he may be harboring.
Yes, there is an emergency line for the water filtration place thingy. It's busy. It's been busy for the last 583 times he's dialed the phone.
Please tell my husband he is okay so he can stop wigging out and we can watch a movie, kthxbye.
EDIT: He got through. No nasties, just "clay and sediment".
