Problem – Chemicals, Toxins, PCB, MTBE, TCE & THM
Symptoms: Unfortunately, these contaminants are very hard to detect and are often unregulated, so symptoms may not be seen for years.
Causes: Chlorionation disinfection byproducts produce trihalomethanes, which are known carginogens, while other toxins such as pesticides, PCB and TCE and others, are industrial discharges from years ago. Additionally, prescription medications and hazardous wastes improperly disposed of can be an issue. We even find out that perchlorate from rocket fuel can contaminate our water.
Health Concerns: Many of these contaminants are known as endocrine disruptors, which can be ingested, inhaled or absorbed through the skin. These disruptions can cause cancerous tumors, birth defects and other developmental disorders.
Action Level: Not always known.
