Drinking water may be terrorist target

September 22, 2001 COLUMBUS -- Some are concerned that drinking water may become the next target of terrorists.

Ohio's water division administrator Jeff Hubbard said the FBI sent e-mail warnings to every water department in the country, telling administrators to take extra precautions.

Authorities said they have no credible information about a new terrorist threat but are on alert for those who wish to contaminate the drinking water.

This really frightens me. How easy this would be to do.
