Bold is offering residents of the Mead, Nebraska community whose water has been potentially impacted by contaminants from the AltEn ethanol plant pollution a free countertop water filter, to help protect their families from any possible health issues that could now be in their home tap water.

We asked several scientists from the local universities, and believe the heavier-duty carbon filtration product we selected offers the best-possible protection from the specific chemicals, pesticide and fungicide pollutants. There are documents posted beneath the sign-up form from the EPA that describe the filtration system, as well as a study on how the particular chemicals in question here can affect drinking water.

(We also will provide a similar filter designed for a shower head, to filter your bathing water.) Alternately, you may want to investigate whether a (more costly) “whole-home” water filtration system would be best for your family’s needs.

Residents in the Mead area may sign up on the form below to have a countertop water filter delivered directly to your home.

In addition to having a filter mailed to you, Bold has also partnered with local folks to make these water filters available for pickup — at the Mead Covenant Church, 1540 County Rd 10, Mead, NE 68041.

You may pick up a free water filter on Thursdays, 4:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m., beginning on Thursday, Sept. 9th.
