New York City Mayor Laments Not Being Told Sooner About Arsenic In Drinking Water In Public Housing Complexes | app

NEW YORK – Mayor Eric Adams asked on Monday why members of his own administration had not informed him sooner of the discovery of arsenic in the drinking water of a huge New York City Housing Authority complex in Manhattan. .

According to a city government official, NYCHA Brass first discovered last Thursday that high levels of the dangerous chemical had been detected in the water at the Riis Houses in the East Village.
