Water in the News in America
From the California drought to chemical spills in West Virginia and the algae blooms in Ohio, water is definitely in the news.
Today, it’s in New Jersey, where the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) announced last week (August 12th) that the capping of the two landfills in the townships of Cinnaminson and Duran, New Jersey, didn’t require any more action to be taken as the current measures have proven to be effective. The sites drew national attention when the federal government placed the area on its Super Fund list which was created to clean up toxic and deadly chemical dumpsites around the country in 1986.
The sites were eventually capped with a clay dome when it was discovered that toxic waste was leaking from the dump and had contaminated the ground and ground water. Capping the sites with a protective covering has proven effective in preventing any more leeching of chemicals from the respective sites. Specially designed systems were installed to control the effluvium emanating from that smoldering heap of toxicity.
Initially, the 400-acre site was mined for sand and gravel. That changed however, when those pits became the epicenter for the dumping of solid, then later toxic waste until it was shut down in 80’s.
That contamination was in the form of heavy metals and volatile organic compounds or VOCs. Volatile organic compounds sound almost natural and harmless. They are naturally occurring, but they are anything but harmless.
Volatile organic compounds are chemicals that contain carbon. They are found in every living creature. Aside from carbon these compounds contain elements such as bromine, sulfur, nitrogen and fluorine and others. These chemicals and more are released through the burning of fuels such as gasoline, diesel exhaust, and solvents.
Solvents are where the bad things really start to happen.
Solvents like Benzene, formaldehyde, Styrene and Tetrochloroethylene, the main ingredient used in dry cleaning, as well as, paint thinner, and lacquer thinner, along with repellents and degreasers, and on and on. These dangerous chemical and hundreds more were dumped at those landfills which poisoned the land and water.
One would think the air around that site wouldn’t be too good either.
The Good News
The most recent findings of the EPA confirm that the capping of the site has been completely effective and that the ground and drinking water are no longer contaminated, which must be a tremendous relief to those good citizens.
Continuous testing and monitoring of the site was recommended however.
Tyent Ionized Alkaline Water
Were you aware that many of those dangerous chemicals found at the New Jersey site and hundreds more were tested on Tyent machines by state certified water testing facility Envirotek Laboratories in New Jersey? The results were incredulous.
The Tyent MMP 9090 T and the Tyent UCE 9000 T effectively reduced the presence of these chemicals to levels deemed safe for human consumption.
