High Chromium 6 Levels Found in Norman Water (Dec 20, 2010)

A study released Monday by the Environmental Working Group lists drinking water in Norman as having the highest level of chromium 6 of any site they surveyed.

The report looks at levels of the chemical in 35 cities across the country. Laboratory analysis by the group shows Norman’s tap water has 12.9 parts per billion of chromium 6, also called hexavalent Chromium. Honolulu was next on the list at 2 parts per billion.

The EWG says chromium 6 is a possible carcinogen.

The group is pushing the federal Environmental Protection Agency to set a legal limit for the chemical in drinking water and require public water supply testing.
