Environmental Working Group

A map of articles reporting algal blooms across the country by the Environmental Working Group reveals a widespread problem. But that algae doesn’t seem to be contaminating Indiana’s drinking water as much as it is in other states. 

The Environmental Working Group found levels of the chemical 1,4-dioxane above health guidelines in five Indiana utilities. In a new report, the national environmental advocacy organization is raising concerns about the unregulated toxic chemical found in drinking water systems across the country.
