Re: hum/water

Jim: I'm actually in touch with folks from Rancho Cordova and have been
for many months now. Now there are some folks with major perchlorate

Melody, dod you hear the series NPR did about this same problem in
<br>Rancho Cordova, California, not too long ago? There's a study of
health <br>effects that has been going on for quite a few years, as I
recall. So <br>far, it's been like Love Canal--lots of contamination but
no one's <br>gotten sick.<br><br><br>On Friday, July 2, 2004, at 04:11

legally and scientifically define a safe level rages on in<br>>
Washington DC between the EPA, the National Academy of Sciences,
the<br>> Department of Defense, and the aerojet industry. Of course, the
EPA and<br>> the NAS would like to see a lower level set (less than 4
parts per<br>> billion) while the DOD and the aerojet manufacturers
would like to see <br>> a<br>> radically higher level (400 parts per
billion or higher). Follow the<br>> money and who do you think is likely
to win??? Regardless, our town is<br>> pursuing our own interests and
has commissioned an intensive water <br>> study<br>> to be done by an
independent engineering firm. We will be paying in<br>> excess of
$30,000 for the study but are confident the results of it <br>>
will<br>> be impartial and therefore should give us a good idea of what
OUR next<br>> steps will be, independent of what the EPA thinks they
might or might<br>> not do. Stay tuned...and thanks for asking, Pam! Did
