How TCE and PCE Can Harm Us: Expert Information You Can Trust

If you have reason to research how chemicals can harm your family-say, for example, your water supply has been found to be contaminated-please be careful. There is a lot of "information" available on the internet, but not all of it is reliable. In the unreliable category are studies performed or funded by the companies who manufacture those chemicals, or use them in their industrial processes. They have hundreds of millions, maybe billions, of dollars to gain by convincing us that their chemicals are safe. And while this extraordinary financial stake does not necessarily make their research false, common sense tells us that it may well cause them to resolve the scientific grey areas in favor of a conclusion that chemicals are safe, or not as dangerous as perhaps they truly are. That alone should cause you to look elsewhere for information to which you can trust your family's health.

Stop the $1 Billion Development in Los Angeles Until the TCE Contamination is Cleaned Up

los-angeles-231612_1920.jpgIt's such a compelling story: A 10-years-in-the-making plan to pour $1 billion into the redevelopment of Jordan Downs, a once-dangerous, crime ridden public housing project in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles, that had been the stage for nationally-televised riots in the 1960's. The idea is to convert what had been 700 badly scarred public housing units into a beautiful, mixed income neighborhood of 1,400 units, shops and park space. A real monument to progress and understanding.

WHAT THE PEOPLE OF NONANTUM NEED TO KNOW ABOUT TCE VAPOR CONTAMINATION

For the last 17 years, I and a team of lawyers have been representing families threatened by TCE contamination in their water supply, in the groundwater underneath their homes, and in the air inside their homes (called "vapor intrusion"). Recent reports in the media unfortunately describe how TCE, disposed of years ago in Nonantum, Massachusetts has seeped into the groundwater about 60 feet below the surface, and, after turning into gas ('vapor"), has risen back up through the soil and intruded into the breathing space of area homes.
