We are looking forward to a hearing to be held in Sacramento on April 19, 2017 to testify about the dangers of 1,2,3-TCP, and to urge the State Water Board to adopt a strict MCL for the contaminant. 

1,2,3-Trichloropropane (TCP) is a known carcinogen that has contaminated a great deal of California's water supply for decades. The biggest impacts of this contaminant can be seen throughout the agriculture-rich Central Valley.
