Perchlorate Risk

Organization(s) Massachusetts Dept. of Environmental Protection
Project Description In April 2002, the Bourne Water District (BWD) asked MA DEP for guidance on perchlorate after the compound was detected in their wells. To date, no drinking water standard has been set by the EPA or the state. Given the seriousness of the potential adverse effects associated with perchlorate and the fact that children were at risk, combined with uncertainty over the schedule of federal efforts to establish a drinking water standard for perchlorate, MA DEP provided interim guidance to the BWD and initiated the standard setting process.
