TCP (1,2,3-trichloropropane) is a toxic chemical contaminating groundwater in cities and small communities across California. TCP was deemed a carcinogen by the State of California in 1999 - more than 15 years ago! - but TCP remains unregulated and untreated in hundreds of drinking water systems across the state. The State Water Board is about to set a new legal limit for this dangerous pesticide byproduct, and the polluters - Shell and Dow - are lobbying hard to get a lenient, less-health protective standard so they won't have to pay as much for clean-up. We need to let the State Water Board know that Californians prioritize community health!
Join our TCP Action Team to be the first to know about opportunities to ensure the State Water Board adopts the most health-protective legal limit for TCP this year -- and ensures that the polluters pay for clean-up of this dangerous contaminant! If you live in California, we'd also love to have you join us at one of the public workshops the State Water Board is holding this month:
