Chemicals Considered For Possible Listing Under California Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act
The Act (Proposition 65) requires California's governor to publish and update a list of chemicals known to the State to cause cancer or reproductive toxicity. Two chemicals are recently being considered for addition to the list: Dibromoacetic acid and Methylimidazole. You can read the announcement by the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment by clicking here. With respect to Dibromoacetic acid, I found a report identifying the 3 most polluted communities in California.
