COMING REPORT: ROCKET FUEL POLLUTES MANY STATES
On July 18, 2001, sites in 39 states that have known or suspected contamination from perchlorate, a component of rocket fuel and some fertilizers, will be highlighted in an Environmental Working Group report (Rocket Science: Perchlorate and the Toxic Legacy of the Cold War, available here with a password on July 17, and to the public on July 18). Contamination is dominated by rocket fuel from defense contractor sites. The report also offers EWG's perspective on proposed drinking water standards for perchlorate under development by EPA. EWG: Bill Walker, 510-444-0973 or Liza Pike, 415-561-2325.
