Protect Animals from DBPs of Chloraminated Water

    1. Petition by

      M.Johanna Smith

      Arlington, VA

Chloramines create disinfectant by products called NDMAs, and Iodic DBPs, which are ultra carcinogenic, not only for people but for animals, marine and wildlife nationwide.  The ultra toxicity of DBPs was discussed at the August 2012  Gordon Research Center Conference on  DBPs of Chloraminated Drinking Water Systems but the findings were withheld by EPA  from the general public.

President Obama has the sole power to direct EPA to make public the Gordon Research Center findings and implement change to protect animals, our pets, our wildlife/marine life from these ultra - carcinogens. Technology exists that toxic chemicals are no longer necessary in drinking water treatment.

      I have a dog and I don't want to be giving him poison to drink. Obama should understand he has 2 dogs. It's not right to poison drinking water that animals drink. It's our job to protect them.

      Chloramine is used in ormond beach water treatment and when asked, the operator here said boiling removes it when it's not that easy according to wikipedia. Plus, who wants chlorine and ammonia in their air? It's disgusting but it still continues here in chemical america.
