What Water Systems Have Tested Water In Response to NYT Story?

Pennsylvania American Water Company announced on May 16th the test results from its extraordinary battery of tests. 

The Pittsburgh Post Gazette reported that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection stated that 10 other systems had tested their water and found their water is safe too.

Does anyone have the names of the 10 other companies?  When did they release their results?

    To me this whole issue is another example of a reporter blundering in to an issue that he doesn't have the background to understand, thinking he knows better than regulators who have decades of experience in these matters and writing a series of articles that make wild inferences with no basis in fact. The inferences then become facts to readers who are prone to distrusting industry and government.
