We previously reported on a recent study that revealed that a dangerous compound, hexavalent chromium (the same compound that contaminated waters in Erin Brockovich’s famous story), has been found in the water of 31 cities across America.
Senators Barbara Boxer and Dianne Feinstein worked fast and have called on the Environment Protection Agency to fix this contamination problem. They plan to introduce legislation that would give the EPA a deadline to set a max level of the chemical acceptable in water.
This needs to happen! Oversight over this kind of this = Sick people!
