A News-Leader analysis of 6,700 water quality records from 382 southwest Missouri communities revealed that small providers "are among the state's most frequent violators of laws designed to protect the public health. Most infractions stem from simple failure to test for potentially harmful elements such as bacteria, industrial chemicals and naturally occuring radioactivity." The special report included graphics outling the water treatment process, a timeline of water supply problems in the Ozarks and descriptions of contminants often found in water supplies.
