But they did say, "Well sir... you CAN have it independently tested. That will of course be at your own expense. But we can assure you that the City of Altoona has THE best water in central PA".
The pathetic part of this is I can guarantee they've tested the water for all the parameters you're looking for, and at your expense via taxpayer dollars. So why not just give you the information? My municipality also just gave the required reporting information at first, but when I asked for the specific info I needed, and explained why, one of the engineers was more than forthcoming. I've also used the Ward Labs reports in the past, and they're great, so at least you have that option.
