McGuire Malcolm Pirnie Perchlorate Services

 McGuire Malcolm Pirnie Environmental Consultants has been active in perchlorate issues since discovery of the contaminant in drinking water in 1997. Since then, we have been a consultant to numerous water systems, worked with both manufacturers of treatment technologies and potentially responsible parties (PRPs), and given expert witness testimony on perchlorate-related matters.

For more information on these services, please contact Mike McGuire at either mmcguire@pirnie.com, or visit mcguireinc.com/perchlorate.

  • Language is important in marketing water products (NY Times Magazine, January 7)
    Commentary: Eminent wordologist William Safire uses water terminology to illustrate retronyms: "Those fogies that S. J. Perelman wrote were 'afflicted with total recall' will remember what they used to call water. With the rising tide of bottled water, not to mention sparkling water (formerly soda water, or seltzer), New Yorkers who yearn for the pristine product of the local reservoirs have taken to asking the waiter for Bloomberg water, formerly Giuliani water, after the sitting mayor’s name. In the rest of the nation, that refreshing and pleasantly inexpensive drink, not carbonated but with its own beaded bubbles winking at the brim, is now known by the retronym tap water."
