Thanks for all the responses! I'm fairly new to Salem and didn't know if this was a common problem. Read MoreThe tap water smells more strongly at times and then seems to fade for awhile. I think I'll switch to bottled water. I assume the water is from the same reservoir for all parts of Salem?

Evocative names and labels depicting pastoral scenes have convinced us that the liquid is theRead Morepurest drink around. “But no one should think that bottled water is better regulated, better protected or safer than tap. Yes, some bottled water comes from sparkling springs and other pristine sources. But more than 25 percent of it comes from a municipal supply. The water is treated, purified and sold to us, often at a thousandfold increase in price. Most people are surprised to learn that they’re drinking glorified tap water, but bottlers aren’t required to list the source on the label. This year Aquafina will begin stating on labels that its H2O comes from public water sources. And Nestlé Pure Life bottles will indicate whether the water comes from public, private or deep well sources. Dasani acknowledges on its website, but not on the label itself, that it draws from local water.

The point here is those water way laws were made to try and squeeze industry. the only type ofRead Moreindu stry and things will be drawn here because of past industry and contamination and rain and water access. those fundamentals built this country. this is someones land and we need power. you can say they are spewing fallacy but you are not realizing the ideas of this country and capitalism the liberals will squeeze you edit censor you threaten harass and defame you and demonize you if your right and try to do something that goes against there agenda. they wont serve your rights and needs and respect you way of life. this place has been here before most people and business or homes were built. most people who were from salem or born here owned businesses or worked in factories. salem was rebuilt by shipping and factories after the fire. salem was grown because of trade and shipping. to not have commercial water front is a shame for a city that was built on shipping. recreation is bad idea considering the contamination and the longterm affects of what will wash out from north river Peabody areas and forest river. industy is the only option. salem needs a tax cut. more people will invest in homes and business and hire employees. salem will loose more jobs and businesess now that the state wants to push a minimum wage increase. salem cant manage the streets and schools. there looseing revenue so fast they thing raising taxes is the answer. if they were enforcing laws and traffic laws there would be revenue and raises are no the answer especially when the work isn't getting done. we are not gaining much business if you look at whats gone and what changed hands and what is closed. the fire depart and police department go after small business people and don't respect rights and even private property owners. but when some people in this city do things they get away with it. john keenan was a monkey and had no real grasp on working men and business he was a potted plant. we are in a cold war spat and gas and oil prices will sky rocket so the need to have power and to export will be there as well and this pier can load ships. we will be selling gas to Europe and Ukraine soon Russia is manipulating the world market. the biggest headache is the mass liberals are so dependant on dc and handouts from the state or feds they cant cut waste and use there own money for things.

Its time to see new change in salem. but all they had to do was open there eyes and do something a Read Moredifferent way. lets face it its gambling and goes against the catholic teachings. we have keno scratch tickets and casinos coming. . this bingo is seen by many as a waste of time and its not worth that amount of money if people jus donated what they spent on bingo the church would be better off. it is the utmost unhealthy group of people and just a seedy environment. this is the more liberal side of boston ancient catholic ways that need to change. if people weren't ignorant they would have an event. I suppose if it wernt for money no one would go but if it were for some vacation or some grocery shopping trip it would be more fun or other prize. most of the people go and smoke drink soda and popcorn. most are over weight and smoke theres really no benefit to the bingo the school had debt and thebingo didn't rescue it and the parish has debt so its really just ablack hole and a waste of resources. if they want to be social theres social clubs and a senior center theres community meetings. they can go to church an socialize.
