  • Report: 15 million Americans’ drinking water tainted by toxic chemical

    Huffington Post - 06/08/2017

    Among the sites, tracked by Northeastern University researchers, are 21 military bases, 20 industrial facilities and seven civilian firefighting locations.

    Phil Brown, Northeastern University’s Social Science Environmental Health Institute director, said the hope of the tracking project is to make more Americans aware of the problem’s ubiquity.

    “Chemical policy has not done an adequate job of protecting us from this,” Brown told HuffPost. “This is a whole class of chemicals that people rarely hear about. But the more we know, the more consumer and environmental activism will come about.”
