Does anyone know what the environmental impact of the brine solution that is
released from water softeners?  I am considering getting one, but am worried
about the brine getting into the local Michigan water table.  If it does,
why don't we hear about it?  Does the impact differ from the septic drain
field to the water treatment plants?  Thanks for your help.
