Here’s another example of the stunning swiftness of the federal agencies. In Sunday’s Fresno Bee there’s an article about contaminants in the water of many San Joaquin Valley wells, affecting a million people. From the article:
“The state is far ahead of the federal government in regulating TCP, which was discovered at a Superfund site in Southern California in the 1990s.
“But TCP has the attention of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, which expects to have national regulations in the next four to five years. [emphasis mine]
“‘It is a carcinogen,’ said toxicologist Bruce Macler of the EPA drinking water program. ‘I'm more than just concerned.’”Aren’t we all!
