"Using data for 27 Texas counties from 1978-1987, it is shown that the incidence rates of suicide, homicide, and rape are significantly higher in counties whose drinking water supplies contain little or no lithium than in counties with water lithium levels ranging from 70-170 micrograms/L."

This finding was published in 1990. In December 2009, The New York Times Magazine devoted a few paragraphs to lithium in the drinking water, but only as it pertained to the suicide rate. This was after a Japanese study found that the suicide rate was lower in areas with higher concentrations of lithium in the drinking water.

An Austrian study was published in 2011 in The British Journal of Psychiatry that mirrored the results of the Japanese study.

This all goes back at least as far as 1971, when Time magazine published an article about the much higher level of lithium in the drinking water of El Paso, compared to Dallas, and the much lower murder rate in El Paso, compared to Dallas.

As far as I can tell, nothing, other than calls for "further research," has been done about this.
