Cape Cod

According to Cape Cod times, a $6.5M carbon treatment system is being purchased to treat Hyannis water contaminants like PFOS and PFOA which are hormone disrupting compounds used in fire-fighting foams and aviation hydraulic fluids which are shown to make drinking water highly unsafe, levels of these compounds were among the highest reported in the US drinking water,this water has extended from Hyannis to the boroughs in Cape Cod.This information was made possible due to an investigation by Silent Spring Institute reporting that 75 percent of these contaminants come from Septic systems delivering water to households . “We found many contaminants in Cape Cod’s drinking water supply, indicating that current policies are not adequate to prevent emerging contaminants from getting into drinking water. Septic systems are the main source,” said Laurel Schaider, Ph.D., a research scientist at Silent Spring Institute.

A price tag of $384 Billion has been estimated by the EPA that would need to be invested by local water systems to keep the water clean within the coming decades, and experts warn that water contamination could lead to cancer, gastrointestinal diseases and developmental delays in children.
