The Globe reports that the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association has objected to the Police Commissioner’s directive to get rid of water coolers (which would save $50k). The BPPA notes that the coolers were originally instituted as a health measure.

Given the recent findings that allegedly harmful chemical Bisphenol A (which is found in almost all water cooler bottles) leaches into the water after rather brief exposure, the BPPA may be better off listening to the Commissioner.
