Despite some residents concerns about the water in Somerville, the Environmental Protection Agency is giving it it's stamp of approval.

Area residents are receiving a water quality report for 2007, in which the EPA states the water meets or exceeds all federal water requirements.

Some residents have expressed concerns over the cloudy appearance of the water.

But the EPA says things such as calcium, sodium, or iron which are often found in drinking water can cause taste, color, or odor problems, but that taste and odor are not monitored by the EPA.

However, the EPA states that these constituents are no cause for health concerns.
