The EPA has reported in a recent press release that chlorpyrifos, a popular insecticide, may cause health risks that are too high for workers who handle it. It can also have a negative impact on watersheds, though it does not cause a risk in the air.
The EPA’s assessment of the insecticide shows risk, but the risk seems limited to small geographical boundaries and only to drinking supplies in the immediate area where chlorpyrifos is mixed, loaded or applied. Also, only those who work directly with the insecticide seem to be affected, not people nearby. There is no risk due to exposure through airborne particles.
The recent assessment is the latest in EPA’s efforts to regulate chlorpyrifos use.Read More
A recent study implicates leaking fracking wells in contaminating drinking water for dozens of Pennsylvanian homes, according to an a report from Live Science . Researchers from Ohio State University made the connection using geochemical testing and tracked methane to several water wells.
Fracking wells are contained in multiple layers of cement and steel generally capable of safeguarding underground water. However, these protective barriers can fail due to damage. It is estimated that Pennsylvania will gain as many as 100,000 fracking wells in the near future. Scientists believe their findings will promote treating affected wells and decreasing the chances of contamination at new fracking well locations.Read More
Areas with undrinkable salty groundwater, like the majority of India, have a new option to create potable water.
Salty groundwater is often made drinkable through reverse osmosis desalination plants dependent on electricity. However, a study by Massachusetts Institute of Technology researchers shows electrodialysis is a more viable option for areas off the grid, according to a recent release from the school.
Electrodialysis, powered by solar energy, separates salty water from fresh water by using opposing charged electrodes. The process provides better results than reverse osmosis, but uses a fraction of the energy. The scientists plan to implement a working prototype in India in January and hope to see the technology applied in other water scarce situations.Read More
