  • Military Bases Linked To Drinking Water Contamination
    Contamination By Sara Jerome sarmje The municipal water authority in Warminster PA is struggling with dangerous contaminants Namely perfluorooctanoic acid or PFOS and perfluorooctanesulfonic acid known as PFOA Recent testing showed the authority had the third highest level of PFOS of all public drinking water systems tested in the entire country 1 09 parts per billion as well as a very high rate of PFOA 349 ppb The Intercept recently reported A nearby township Warrington is facing similar problems Testing found PFCs at elevated levels in three of its public supply wells and also shut them down The chemicals had spread into some private wells too By June 2015 45 had been identified with either a PFOA or PFOS level above the safety threshold set by the EPA The chemicals were also present at lower levels in more than 100 other wells the report said PFOA and PFOS are manmade chemicals linked to health risks including obesity reproductive problems and cancers They are used to make Teflon stain and water resistant coatings cosmetics and other products Each is listed on the contaminant candidate list set by the U S EPA meaning they may someday become regulated under the Safe Drinking Water Act PFCs persist in the environment and are easily absorbed by the human body Both PFOS and PFOA the best studied of these chemicals have been shown to be endocrine disruptors tiny amounts of which can interfere with the hormonal system the report said Chemicals used on military sites appear to be a major part of the problem Water testing done in or near military bases which isn t yet complete has already shown that the chemicals spread into public drinking water systems around Willow Grove Pease and a third base Eielson in Alaska the report said Warrington and

  • The $2.7 Billion Question How Should Cali Store Water
    how best to save the water that arrives between the drought years weighing the value of billion dollar construction projects against smaller and less expensive measures the report said The path California chooses will affect people across the United States and even around the world Policymakers have some funding available but there is little consensus about how best to use it Last year voters approved 7 1 billion in bonds for water projects An outline of the measure shows 2 7 billion was slated to go to water storage But how should the water storage funding be spent Many farmers are advocating for dam building an approach that was popular in the 20th century Not far from this tiny hamlet northeast of Fresno for instance the government is thinking of building a new artificial lake just above an existing one the report said Yet as agricultural interests prepare a major push to get water projects built doubts are growing about whether spending huge sums to pour high walls of concrete are the best way to solve California s water problems Many independent experts and almost all environmental groups argue that dams would supply relatively little water for the money They contend that Californians need to move aggressively to more modern methods of water management reducing waste to a minimum and learning to live within the limits imposed by an arid environment the report said Another option aquifers The report explained It turns out that California already has a place to store immense amounts of water without necessarily building new dams Decades of overpumping have left the state s water bearing formations known as aquifers with enormous spare capacity By some estimates California could pump 10 times as much water into the aquifers as could be held by the new dams

  • Recycled Water Plant Anchors Infrastructure Overhaul In SoCal
    and plans to finish a new recycled water plant in 2018 The city is located in San Luis Obispo County a region enveloped in exceptional drought according to the U S Drought Monitor Mayor Frank Mecham praised the city for readiness I think Paso Robles has really stepped up to the plate to provide supplemental water sources and take some pressure off the groundwater basin Whatever anyone can do to relieve the basin from being pumped more should do it he said per San Luis Obispo s Tribune The overall price tag for the project is 77 million according to The Tribune The projects are capable of producing as much as 7 300 acre feet of water per year the report said The price on the sewage treatment plant was 47 million the report said And the recycled water plant clocks in at 18 million With the completion of the sewer plant the city is now ready to begin its third and final supplemental water project a tertiary treatment plant that will clean the 2 7 million gallons a day of water produced by the sewer plant to the point that it can be used for irrigation at city parks and golf courses and for other non potable uses the report said citing city planner Susan DeCarli The Nacimiento water treatment plant cost 11 7 million and allows Paso Robles to use its allotment of 4 000 acre feet per year from the Nacimiento pipeline That means that during the winter months the city of more than 30 000 can get most if not all of the water it needs from the pipeline and does not need to pump any groundwater the report said citing Matt Thompson the city s wastewater resources manager Demand for water decreases a lot in
