  • Preliminary findings of PFAA health study shows possible infant developmental problems (Charleston Gazette, February 22); the toxicology conference where this important paper was presented featured a lot more on health effects of PFAAs
  • Tap water worries rising (Minneapolis Star Tribune, February 25)
    Commentary: The views of consumers in the affected area vary widely. One example that probably resonates with many people despite assurances from state health officials is: "Maybe we've been watching too much Erin Brockovich, but the fact is that they just don't know the health effects," said Gilbert, a 26-year-old University of Minnesota Law School student and the father of two boys, ages 3 and 1. "And that's OK that they don't know. But for us, we just said, 'You know what, for the time being, we're just not going to take the chance.'"'

Malcolm Pirnie Perchlorate Services

 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 (mmcguire@pirnie.com), or visit mcguireinc.com/perchlorate.

  • Literally, a heavy metal band emerges from the PG&E legacy in California desert (Desert Dispatch, February 26)
    Commentary: Their parents are likely relieved that the band decided to change its name. "The band, once called Morbus after a 17th century disease that made people look like vampires, later changed its name to Chromium 6, a heavy metal known to have negative health effects... A heavy death metal."
