Dear EIR

Thank you for confirming the list of the many chemicals added to our water supply.

Much Appreciated.

1. Kindly also provide a response to our second part of our FOI request, namely, why are all these chemicals added.

2. Kindly confirm if the information provided is factual, or an opinion of the sender, and / or your organisation(s).

3. We note that chlorine is added; and then a chemical is added, to remove the chlorine - why is this please, if chlorine is considered non harmful to people.

Thank You.

Yours sincerely,

George Tsigarides
