Philadelphia recommends drinking bottled water after chemical spill

Authorities in Philadelphia recommended residents across most of the city use bottled water for drinking or cooking Sunday after a chemical spill into a tributary of the Delaware River in suburban Bucks County.

Michael Carrol, deputy managing director for the City’s Office of Transportation, Infrastructure and Sustainability, said no contaminants had been found in the drinking water since the spill late Friday night.

“Nonetheless, because we cannot be 100% sure that there won’t be traces of these chemicals in the tap water throughout the afternoon, we want the public to be aware so that people can consider switching to bottled water to further minimize any risk,” he said.
