Why am I so worried about your drinking water?
Hinkley, California is now a (Ghost Town)
with the exception of the company
[Pacific Gas and Electric]
that poisoned the towns drinking water!
IS IT IN YOUR WATER?
If you live within a Hinkley town distance from a dirty business, get you water tested, by a reliable company and then get a reliable second opinion,
the life you save could be your own.
While you are doing this
be thinking about
your vote in November.
Let’s find out why our government officials
those dirty businesses
to still be
our drinking water
The Dangers of Hexavalent Chromium (Chromium 6)
Where does hexavalent chromium come from?
In addition to natural sources, hexavalent chromium enters drinking water sources through discharges of dye and paint pigments, wood preservatives, chrome plating wastes, and leaching from hazardous waste sites.
In other words, ‘NO this is the exact wording’ from careless company treatment of their chemicals into the ground and/or our water!
Not surprisingly, communities near chromium waste disposal sites or chromium manufacturing and processing plants are at particular risk of exposure.
Probably the most impacted people are workers exposed on the job.
Chromium occurs in the environment largely in two forms: trivalent chromium (chromium 3), which is an essential human nutrient, and hexavalent chromium (chromium 6), which is the most toxic form of the element. Currently, chromium is regulated in drinking water as total chromium and the California drinking water standard of 50 parts per billion measures the amount of both toxic (hexavalent) and non- or less-toxic (trivalent) chromium in the water. Basing the standard on the combined levels of both types of chromium does not adequately protect public health because hexavalent chromium is more toxic at much lower levels than the other form. A combined standard leaves the public vulnerable to health effects from hexavalent chromium.
In the drinking water
If you remember, in the movie Erin Brockovich, chromium hexavalent is the dangerous chemical compound that Ms. Brockovich helped to eradicate from Hinkley, California’s water supply.
Why did she pursue the fight?
Because chromium hexavalent is extremely toxic and dangerous. The Health Dangers of Chromium Hexavalent
