With water contamination reports that have been coming out in the news media this past year we have noticed that this is a problem that is seemingly on the rise more so in 2010 than were reported in 2009. These reports resulted from a number of news media sources as well as independent studies from around the country all of which cannot be denied. As a result we felt it necessary to recap them in this article as the condition of our very precious water supplies are being threatened from coast to coast. The greatest problem with these numerous reports is that with so many water resources being impacted by these contaminants we seriously have to question just how much safe water is left. Unfortunately, there is a rather large disconnect between that which is deemed safe by our federal authorities and what your doctor would tell you was safe.
February 2010 – report by Environmental Integrity and Earthjustice that documented water contamination from 31 coal-ash dump sites in 14 state.
February 2010 – AP news report WILMINGTON, N.C. — An environmental contractor dramatically underreported the level of a cancer-causing chemical found in tap water at Camp Lejeune, then omitted it altogether as the Marine base prepared for a federal health review, an Associated Press review has found.
May 2010 – The CDC reported that more than 2 million Californians have been exposed to dangerously high levels of nitrates from ground water sources throughout the state.
March 2009 to date – Fish caught near waste water treatment plants serving five major U.S. cities had residues of pharmaceuticals in them, including medicines used to treat high cholesterol, allergies, high blood pressure, bipolar disorder and depression, researchers reported Wednesday. Findings from this first nationwide study of human drugs in fish tissue have prompted the Environmental Protection Agency to significantly expand similar ongoing research to more than 150 different locations.
Most recently, on December 26, 2010 Environmental Working Group (EWG) has reported that tap water in 31 out of 35 American cities have higher than normal concentrates of hexavalent chromium (Chromium-6). What’s that you might be saying… Chromium 6 is a compound that regulates glucose metabolism and when inhaled or ingested over long periods of time, increases the risk of cancer to the lungs, kidneys and intestines.
If this sounds familiar to you then you might remember the true story as was depicted by the movie, “Erin Brochovich” in which she fought long and hard at her own personal risk to bring the polluters of this extremely dangerous chemical to justice that quite literally destroyed the lives and an entire town.
Sadly enough the list of reports like these is never ending and they span nearly every city of every state in our entire country. They also have numerous common threads regardless of location or the contaminants that are sighted in them as they all originate from one industry or another contaminating our ground water supplies. So what is the solution? The single largest source of clean water on our planet isn’t really on our planet but rather above it in our own Troposphere. Atmospheric Water Generators are the newest technology which allows us to extract this water vapor and through a 12 layer filtration system produces 99.99% pure, safe and clean drinking water.
