...Senior Monsanto scientist Dan Goldstein even recently stated , "If ingested, glyphosate is excreted rapidly, does not accumulate in body fat or tissues, and does not undergo metabolism in humans. Rather, it is excreted unchanged in the urine."
"And he took off the cap," Fernandez says. "And all these friends clapped for him immediately. And that was a huge emotional moment for us."
According to BWWB Assistant General Manager Darryl Jones, "For 10 years, BWWB has used automatic flushing systems in order to improve water quality. We started the program about 2003-2004 with Hydro-Guard. These automatic flushers are used to increase our chlorine residual in the distribution system as well as maintain water clarity and quality throughout.  It has been one of the most advantageous technologies that we have incorporated. While we have a limited staff of employees working in our Water Quality Department, this equipment has increased the technicians' ability to cover more areas throughout the distribution system. We have 90 Hydro-Guard units that do the automatic flushing, and we recommend this as a valuable tool that will benefit any water distribution system."
