Eastern Drill: Testing for Water Purity in Tolland County
There are many Connecticut homes that benefit from various water treatments to improve the quality of their home's tap water. When water flows from your faucet into your glass, if it is clear we assume it is healthy. This past summer a report was released showing that the vast majority of Americans are drinking unhealthy water. The Environmental Working Group revealed that our water has been fouled with hundreds of contaminants that can cause cancer, developmental deficiencies in children, complications in pregnancy and other serious health conditions.
In the State of Connecticut alone, EWG tracked 93 contaminants across the state's water supply. Among the chemicals linked to cancers, organ damage and fetal harm include: Total trihalomethanes , Bromodichloromethane, Chloroform, Chromium (hexavalent), Dibromochloromethane, Radium-228 and Radium-226, Tetrachloroethylene (perchloroethylene), Arsenic, Chlorate and Uranium.
To quote Nnecka Leiba director of Healthy Living Science at the EWG, “There are more than 250 contaminants across our nation’s drinking water... About 160 of those are unregulated. And that’s a big concern, because if a chemical is unregulated, that means it can be present in our water at any level — and be legal.”
