Carcinogens in tap water in Norman, OK
My hometown of Norman, Oklahoma apparently leads the nation in levels of hexavalent chromium (aka "chromium-6") in tap water, with around 12 parts per billion. This has understandably caused some alarm around town, as this sign indicates, in a restaurant near the University of Oklahoma campus.
