It's Time to Regulate Cancer Causing Chemical 1,2,3-TCP Platica

123 TCP (1,2,3-trichloropropane) is a toxic chemical contaminating groundwater in cities and small communities across California. In 1999, TCP was added to the list of chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, however, to this day, it remains unregulated and therefore untreated in hundreds of systems across the state. In March, KQED reporter, Sasha Khohka broadcasted her story on 1,2,3-TCP contamination in own home in Fresno, and progress is being made at State Water Board towards establishing a Maximum Contaminant Level for 1,2,3-TCP. Finally.
