Contamination: The Facts.
As early as WWII, United States Air Force and other Military bases used and disposed of chemical degreasers and other toxic substances that were later determined to contaminate drinking water and pose multiple health risks including:
- Reproductive disorders
- Birth defecs
- Multiple other serious difficulties
Countless military personnel, their families, and private individuals living and working in the near vicinity of the bases may have been affected by these contaminates, through drinking water, general water usage and exposure through vapor seepage.
The four most alarming contaminants are:
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
- Tetrachloroethylene (PCE)
- Vinyl Chloride
Scientific studies show that some or all of these chemical compounds have breeched the ground water supply on several of our US Military Bases and in some instances, have affected civilian properties adjacent to the bases including churches, schools and private wells. Currently, on-going research is being conducted on military bases around the country and on properties directly adjacent to these bases to identify just how wide spread this contamination may be.
