Water ban lifted in half of Barstow, but fears remain high

Nov 21, 2010 9:47:00 PM - latimes.com
Golden State Water Co. is flushing city pipes after one well is found to have 15 times the accepted level of perchlorate. Residents report mixed messages on whether it's safe to bathe in the water.

Health officials lifted a ban on water use in half of Barstow on Sunday afternoon as the local utility continued to flush its system of perchlorate, a chemical used in rocket fuel and munitions that authorities said may have contaminated the city water supply for months.
