www.undergroundworldnews.com When you drink a glass of water, you expect it to be clean and pure, not contaminated with invisible toxic chemicals. But nationwide testing has found that 6.5 million Americans in 27 states are drinking water tainted by an industrial compound that was used for decades to make Teflon. The chemical, known as PFOA, has been detected in 94 public water systems. The amounts are small, but new research indicates that it can be hazardous even at the tiniest doses. PFOA and closely related fluorinated chemicals – including PFOS, once used to make Scotchgard – can cause cancer, birth defects and heart disease and weaken the immune system. Even the lowest level of PFOA detected by the water testing, which was mandated by the Environmental Protection Agency, was about five times higher than what’s safe to drink, according to the new research. This means that even if the EPA has not reported finding PFOA in your drinking water supply, it could still be contaminated. Want to know whether the testing found PFOA, PFOS or any one of four other highly fluorinated chemicals in your drinking water? EWG’s interactive map below shows every U.S. county where the chemicals were detected. Click on your county to see if your water utility found any. Click here to read the full report: Teflon Chemical Harmful at Smallest Doses In a signal of the growing scientific alarm over the dangers of PFOA, the National Toxicology Program recently announced a systematic re-evaluation of the chemical’s effect on the immune system. The program’s Office of Health Assessment and Translation will evaluate ongoing and upcoming studies. It also plans to assemble an expert panel of scientists to review the findings. Americans should be protected against water contamination by PFOA and other so-called perfluorinated compounds, or PFCs. PFOA and PFOS are just two members of this large family of chemicals, which do not break down in the environment. They’ve spread to the farthest reaches of Earth, are in virtually every American’s blood and can be passed from mother to child in the womb and in breast milk. PFOA and PFOS have been phased out in the United States, but scientists have raised concerns that the new chemicals that replaced them may be no safer. This map identifies where water has been contaminated by PFCs county-by-county. http://www.ewg.org/enviroblog/2015/08/your-drinking-water-contaminated-toxic-non-stick-chemicals#.Vd-P7RRAl2o.email

After filing a FOIA request, a Virginia Tech professor recently discovered Michigan state officials knew the city of Flint’s water supply was giving children lead poisoning while falsely assuring residents that the water was safe. Although the government had been aware of the increased levels of lead poisoning since July, they continued to lie to the public until a Flint pediatrician published a study in September that found lead exposure in children had doubled citywide and nearly tripled in high-risk areas. Agreeing to temporarily switch from Detroit’s water supply to the Flint River in April 2014, residents in the city of Flint immediately noticed their tap water appeared cloudy while emitting a pungent odor. After testing the water supply on August 14, 2014, the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) discovered the water tested positive for fecal coliform bacteria, also known as E. coli. Although the city issued several boil advisories to kill the bacteria, the CDC has found that heating or boiling water only increases the lead concentration in the water.

The Flint Water Crisis, as Elon Musk vows to help, but some folks want a Flint Tesla plant instead. Musk said on Twitter that he is committed to helping residents of Flint, Michigan who still have bad water due to high lead levels. Billionaire Elon Musk was challenged on Twitter to help with the flint water crisis and he responded saying that he will help those who still have bad water. He plans to have a dialogue with city officials to see how he can help best. However, as soon as people heard Elon Musk was willing to help Flint, MI, folks started asking for more than just help with the water. Some city officials and residents of Flint, MI are pushing for a Tesla plant in Flint Michigan, and others in Flint are asking for more Flint water tests.

Dr. Klas Ohman describes what emergency preparedness looks like for water treatment utilities. Regulatory requirements, legal liabilities and recognizing the financial consequences are driving emergency preparedness planning. He describes some of the operational challenges (finding staff and services rapidly available in an emergency). Situational reports become critical in making decisions. Having measures that define what outcomes should be in a potential emergency are key. Exercises to plan emergency responses are necessary to get good ideas built before the emergency event. Learning from situational reports (SitReps) is not often done but should be essential. Developing a emergency preparedness culture in municipalities is the overall outcome to strive for. Dr. Klas Ohman is a senior water and environmental engineer with Associated Engineering. His presentation was part of the CWRA/WPAC Joint Conference, Red Deer, Alberta, March 13-14, 2103.

The Emergency Planning and Community Right-to-Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities to report on-site chemicals for which Material Safety Data Sheets exist, if the amounts on-site meet or exceed certain thresholds. This information is made available to emergency first responders, who use it to plan their response to an emergency on or near these sites. By knowing what chemicals are involved, these emergency personnel will be able protect themselves with the appropriate safety equipment designed for particular chemical hazards. In addition, this knowledge helps officials to determine what kind of emergency measures to order for community safety, such as evacuations, sheltering in place, water contamination notifications, or water use restrictions, to name a few. In Montana, this information is reported online via E-Plan, a highly secure, web-based reporting system that can instantly equip response teams with life-saving information.

Japanese government officials plan to take up the issue of leaks of contaminated water at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant at the World Trade Organization. They want to address the concern of South Korea over radioactive contamination of seawater around the plant. The South Korean government last month banned imports of marine products from 8 eastern Japanese prefectures, including Fukushima, citing consumer concern about radioactive contamination. The Japanese government has called for lifting the blanket embargo swiftly. But earlier this week, South Korea's fisheries minister called Japan "immoral" because it allowed radioactive wastewater to leak into the sea from the crippled nuclear plant without prior notification. This week, fish samples showing radioactive contamination exceeding the government standard were confirmed by the Japanese government in some waters off the coast of Fukushima and Ibaraki prefectures. The officials want to convey Japan's position on the issue at a WTO panel meeting, scheduled to be held later this month. Japan's delegates are expected to explain that Japanese marine products are approved for shipping after inspection based on strict standards. The officials will also seek understanding from the international community for Japan's assertion that the South Korean embargo impedes its exports.

A month after one of the most destructive chemical spills in West Virginia's history, state residents are still dealing with lingering questions about the safety of their drinking water. But the potential health risks of the chemical spill in the Elk River outside of Charleston harken back to an even bigger water-contamination catastrophe. From 1953 to 1987, the water at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune in North Carolina was contaminated with harmful chemicals. Marines and their families who lived on base bathed in and ingested that water, and federal scientists have found an increased incidence of some birth defects and cancers such as leukemia in children of mothers exposed to polluted drinking water, according to a new report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. A high rate of male breast cancer among troops stationed at Lejeune during the period of contamination has also been reported. RT's Ameera David speaks with Jerry Ensminger, co-founder of The Few, The Proud, The Forgotten, and Mike Partain, the organization's lead community member, about their experiences at the Marine Corps base.

Inland waters are usually freshwaters, like lakes and rivers, but also include brackish and saline bodies of water.

https://democracynow.org - Even before Hurricane Maria struck the island nearly six months ago, the majority of Puerto Rico’s residents lived with water that violated health standards set by the U.S. law. Since the storm, residents say the situation has only gotten worse. Among the sources of potential water contamination are mountains of coal ash generated by a coal-fired power plant owned by a private company called AES. For years, residents have demanded the company stop dumping toxic coal ash into their community, saying the waste is poisonous to their health and the environment. We speak with Mekela Panditharatne, a lawyer with the Natural Resources Defense Council who just returned from the island and wrote an op-ed in The Washington Post headlined ”FEMA says most of Puerto Rico has potable water. That can’t be true.” Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on nearly 1,400 TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

On Thursday at 12pm EST VICE News journalist Kayla Ruble (https://twitter.com/RubleKB) will join On The Line to take your questions about lead contaminated water in Flint, MI, and the impact on Flint’s residents. Earlier this month, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder declared a state of emergency for the city of just under 100,000 people, who are at risk for toxic lead exposure due to citywide contamination in the water system. Following criticism that clean water was not being distributed efficiently to the city's residents, the governor called in the National Guard for assistance, and President Barack Obama declared a federal emergency over the weekend, authorizing $5 million of federal assistance, though he stopped short of declaring the crisis a "major disaster." Residents across the city had stopped drinking the city water in early 2015, and were forced to purchase bottled water out of their own pocket until state help arrived this month.

http://www.wdtv.com/wdtv.cfm?func=view§ion=5-News&item=Living-Next-to-a-Natural-Gas-Well-Drinking-Contaminated-Water-1695 "...Living Next to a Natural Gas Well; Drinking Contaminated Water Written by Zach Maskell Last updated on March 23, 2012 @ 9:32AM Created on March 21, 2012 @ 11:36PM Back in November 5 News introduced you to a Harrison County woman who says her life was changed completely when natural gas drilling wells were put up just a few hundred feet from her home. She was put on sleeping medication, got into a car accident with a well truck, and even took money from her savings account for an early vacation. We caught up with her to see what she's dealing with now. Although the drilling and hydraulic fracturing ended a couple months ago and the noise has finally died down, Leann Kiner says the repercussions continue to haunt her. What happened this weekend was just a reminder her property may never be the same. "I hate my home. I hate living here now. A place I used to love; I now despise," said Leann Kiner, a homeowner. Her biggest fears were confirmed when she found out from a neighbor, not Antero Resources, that a "water buffalo" had to be installed next to her house. "I still didn't really realize what was going on at the time. I didn't know they was going to tap into my whole house," said Kiner. Subcontractors were called in by the drilling company Antero Resources to install a 2,500 gallon drinking water tank. Leann no longer has access to her well water. Kiner said "I had great well water. In fact I have a girlfriend who can vouch for that. She loved to take a shower here because it made her hair so soft." High levels of the chemical are in both Kiners and her neighbors wells. 5 News attempted to contact Antero to see if there is a link between the drilling and arsenic but our phone calls have not yet been returned. "When I read my levels to her neighbor, he said that I had more arsenic than he did. And they called the health department and the health department told him his level was not a safe level," Kiner explained. Although she says her sink isn't so bad, the water pressure in her shower has gone down plenty and she's not fond of the ear piercing alarm that goes off letting her know the water tank needs to be refilled. Kiner and her house pets now have a clean water source but her horses aren't so lucky. They used to drink from a nearby stream but now more work is required to feed them. Her goddaughter now goes into the garage, drags a heavy duty hose across the street to their barn so she can fill up a drinking trough. "I'm stuck. Nobody's going to by it. It's worthless. It's a worthless piece of property," said Kiner. More Information Private wells are not subject to the EPA's Enforcable Drinking Water Standards because there are tens of millions of them, which would make it unenforceable. Instead, EPA officials said in response to the new findings that people should test their private wells "if they suspect possible contamination." The new USGS maps are useful for well owners who want to check the hot spots. Testing a well for arsenic costs as little as $15 to $30, while treatment systems for removing arsenic cost $1,200 to $3,000, according available sources...."

The water crisis in Flint, Michigan may have been caused by Governor Rick Snyder’s administration, according to Howard Croft, the former director of public works for Flint. Croft has alleged that Snyder’s administration decided to use the Flint River as drinking water after Ed Kurtz, the emergency manager for Flint who was appointed by Snyder, rejected using the river in 2012 after speaking to environmental regulators. Meanwhile, Jeb Bush on Sunday praised Snyder's response to the water contamination crisis in Flint despite the allegations. We look at the shocking revelation on the Lip News with Jo Ankier and Elliot Hill. http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2016/01/24/exclusive-gov-rick-snyder-s-men-originally-rejected-using-flint-s-toxic-river.html Newest Lip News playlist: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TCvj2HSt2CA&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcjJDo6cQBCQprDMQyUQY3r&index=1 CRIME TIME clips playlist – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q1yiIaiX_kQ&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeC9DbpSnIvd2i9BHh2dBvv&index=1 BYOD (Bring Your Own Doc) Highlight Videos- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NeVzXmMOpWQ&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGeu2DCf6Ouo7hTsA5QB2MAL&index=1 MEDIA MAYHEM short videos playlist - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4tu8le00cIo&list=PLjk3H0GXhhGcz4un-zws5sMlCLk3NNjDP&index=1 http://www.thelip.tv https://www.facebook.com/thelip.tv http://www.youtube.com/theliptv

Water supplies and sanitation systems for thousands of communities in Nepal were disrupted by earthquakes in April and May 2015, leaving people at risk of water-borne diseases. Kshamawati village in Dolakha was displaced by the 12 May earthquake, whose epicentre was nearby. Immediately after the disaster, the Nepal Red Cross Society, with support from the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC), installed water tanks and two water points, where people can fetch water for cooking and washing. The Red Cross has also trained village members to maintain the pipes and clear them of debris that accumulates and could block or contaminate the water. But the village coordinator is worried there’s not enough water and the community remains exposed to health risks and disease. Water, sanitation and hygiene promotion (WASH) is one of the main elements in the IFRC’s 24-month earthquake response plan. It includes rehabilitating the physical water and sanitation infrastructure and promoting hygiene with activities such as radio shows, community meetings, illustrated flyers and training for school children.

http://democracynow.org - Flint’s water contamination crisis began in April 2014 after Darnell Earley, an unelected emergency manager appointed by Snyder, switched Flint’s water source to the long-polluted and corrosive Flint River in a bid to save money. Earley is now the emergency manager of Detroit Public Schools. This week, Detroit’s teachers have staged a series of "sickouts" to protest the vast underfunding of the public schools, which have black mold, rat infestations, crumbling buildings and inadequate staffing. We are joined by Curt Guyette, an investigative reporter for the ACLU of Michigan whose work focuses on emergency management and open government. Michigan has the most sweeping emergency management laws in the country, which allow the governor to appoint a single person to run financially troubled cities.

You may have seen or heard about the help Partnership With Native Americans (PWNA) provided in response to the EPA accident mentioned by news sources like ABC and FOX. We are greatly concerned about the challenges the EPA spill has brought to the Navajo people. The toxic sludge spilled into the Animas River, turning the water yellow and unsafe for drinking. Although visibly clear now, there is still a real concern of long-term impact from contaminants like lead and arsenic on residents, livestock, and crops. Several PWNA Program Partners requested emergency deliveries of water, which we quickly fulfilled. This video reflects the first of several. The video also reflects what the river looked like after the disaster and how PWNA and our Navajo Relief Fund program helped. More water donations are needed.

The massive lead contamination of the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, has put public officials in the hot seat for the way concerns and revelations were handled. Now the state's attorney general has named a former prosecutor to investigate whether any laws were broken, but there are questions about how independent the investigation will be.
