Frack relate SLOW 15 yr EPA Chlorpyrifos BAN from agriculture areas – so 2 Urban Drilling may one day

Trillium Management reported that the CDC found that of the 9,282 US tested citizens nationwide, that 93% had tested positive for Chlorpyrifos metabolites, and that the average child aged 6-11 tested exceeded the EPA’s long term acceptable level by four times!

Earth Justice reported that the EPA is proposing to finally ban Chlorpyrifos (food tolerance residuals) in agricultural areas of human exposures (those poor farm workers & families living nearby did NOT get this 2000 protection-nor did our food!).

And…NOPE they are still NOT gonna ban it ON toxic GOLF TURFS….go fracking figure.

Back in 2000 the EPA announced an agreement with pesticide manufacturers to phase out the residential use (except for roach bait in child protective packaging).

A 2007 petition asked to have it also removed from agricultural areas. The result is after FIFTEEN YEARS, the EPA is now soliciting public comment to FINALLY ban Chlorpyrifos in agricultural areas where people, workers, and watershed sources can be exposed.

The ruling is expected by December 2016. Please take the time to comment that the ban needs to apply to ALL uses where run off can affect water supplies…like golf courses can. EPA will accept comments on this proposed rule for 60 days. The Proposed Tolerance Revocation Rule will be available at www.regulations.gov in docket EPA-HQ-OPP-2015-0653.

There now….looking forward to the day when all this fracking secret sauce crap that may start to FINALLY be human-exposure-tested-for. And if is IS found to be showing up in our bodies….lets wait on the EPA to ban fracking in our neighborhoods and from our water-food sources say….fifteen-sixteen years from that point?

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
