Juliet Eilperin and Brady Dennis, The Washington Post Published 4:00 pm PST, Tuesday, January 8, 2019 In the past year, major retailers such as Lowe's and Home Depot have pulled a toxic chemical used in paint strippers, methylene chloride, from their shelves.

Lauren Woeher wonders if her 16-month-old daughter has been harmed by tap water contaminated with toxic industrial compounds used in products like nonstick cookware, carpets and fast-food wrappers. Henry Betz, at 76, rattles around his house alone at night, thinking about the water his family unknowingly drank for years that was tainted by the same contaminants, and the pancreatic cancers that killed wife Betty Jean and two others in his household. Tim Hagey, manager of a local water utility, recalls how he used to assure people that the local public water was safe. That was before testing showed it had some of the highest levels of the toxic compounds of any public water system in the U.S. "You all made me out to be a liar," Hagey, general water and sewer manager in the eastern Pennsylvania town of Warminster, told Environmental Protection Agency officials last month. At "community engagement sessions" like the one in Horsham, residents and state, local and military officials are … [Read more...] about Toxins Turning Up in Dozens of Public Water Systems
