- Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)
- Perchloroethylene (PERC)
- Trichloroethylene (TCE)
These are just some of the most common chemicals that can poison water. A detailed explanation of toxic substances and their effects of humans can be found here.
Other Issues with Contamination
There are additional ways that drinking water can become dangerous other than the presence of the chemicals listed above.
Water Fracking: Also known as “Hydraulic Fracturing,” is a risky process of extracting fossil fuels and oil from the ground and rocks underground. Fracking has become popular with major oil companies. The EPA conducted an in-depth study of the impact of water fracking on drinking water.
VOCs: Volatile Organic Compound are high vapor pressure contaminants that have been proven to be very harmful to humans. This type of poisoning has been linked to many lawsuits involving people exposed at Camp Lejuene Marine Base in North Carolina.
