Clean Water Laws Are Neglected, at a Cost in Suffering
[link to www.nytimes.com]

[snip]

In the last five years alone, chemical factories, manufacturing plants and other workplaces have violated water pollution laws more than half a million times. The violations range from failing to report emissions to dumping toxins at concentrations regulators say might contribute to cancer, birth defects and other illnesses.

However, the vast majority of those polluters have escaped punishment. State officials have repeatedly ignored obvious illegal dumping, and the Environmental Protection Agency, which can prosecute polluters when states fail to act, has often declined to intervene.


Because it is difficult to determine what causes diseases like cancer, it is impossible to know how many illnesses are the result of water pollution, or contaminants’ role in the health problems of specific individuals.

But concerns over these toxins are great enough that Congress and the E.P.A. regulate more than 100 pollutants through the Clean Water Act and strictly limit 91 chemicals or contaminants in tap water through the Safe Drinking Water Act.

Regulators themselves acknowledge lapses. The new E.P.A. administrator, Lisa P. Jackson, said in an interview that despite many successes since the Clean Water Act was passed in 1972, today the nation’s water does not meet public health goals, and enforcement of water pollution laws is unacceptably low. She added that strengthening water protections is among her top priorities. State regulators say they are doing their best with insufficient resources.

The Times obtained hundreds of thousands of water pollution records through Freedom of Information Act requests to every state and the E.P.A., and compiled a national database of water pollution violations that is more comprehensive than those maintained by states or the E.P.A. (For an interactive version, which can show violations in any community, visit www.nytimes.com/toxicwaters.)

In addition, The Times interviewed more than 250 state and federal regulators, water-system managers, environmental advocates and scientists.

That research shows that an estimated one in 10 Americans have been exposed to drinking water that contains dangerous chemicals or fails to meet a federal health benchmark in other ways.

Re: Cancer map may show enormous St. Louis cluster
i have traveled throughout the country,
45 out of 50 states for 15 years..



And there is a strange group of people, living in the wind direction of and EAST of EAST ST. LOUIS...No joke
 Quoting: nitetrain


I used to travel to Wheeling, WVA quite often to perform at the Jamboree.
I always thought it odd the numbers of physically deformed people who came to the shows.
I probably went there 30 times in 30 years.
It seemed to me that the number of deformities was disproportionate to the number of people.

Homeowners lose faith with EPA over West Lake Landfill
[link to www.ksdk.com]

[snip]

ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KSDK) - The majority of St. Louisans who get their water from the Missouri River have most likely never heard of the West Lake Landfill, but they should.

Since 1973, 8,000 tons of nuclear waste has been decaying at this landfill with no protective liner to separate it from ground water.

To understand the depths of concern, just look at the faces of those who wanted EPA officials to hear them.

North County cancer cluster investigation
[link to www.ksdk.com]

[snip]


- A staggering number of cancers, birth defects and illnesses first reported by the I-Team earlier this month has at least one local oncologist calling our findings, "an event."

The reported disease rate in just four square miles of north St. Louis County is considered by some experts to be statistically impossible, and yet, some of the most rare cancers and defects have been reported there.

Shari Riley has been a critical care nurse and nurse administrator for nearly three decades. She grew up near Coldwater Creek in Florissant from the late '60s through '80s. She believes her appendix cancer is linked to nuclear waste found in the creek and nearby radioactive dust piles that blew in over North County during that time.
