The town of Hinkley, Calif., had a Hollywood moment when its battle with chromium-6 tainted water was made into the film "Erin Brockovich." But Hinkley, still struggling with contamination, hasn't had a Hollywood ending. Miles O'Brien examines what chemicals are in our drinking water and why it's so difficult to get rid of them.
