NGO calls EPA to ban trichloroethylene



Under Trump, the Environmental Protection Agency has been a disaster, actively rolling back or blocking laws meant to protect us, including reversing course on banning extremely toxic chemicals.

The new Acting EPA Administrator, Andrew Wheeler, says he wants to do better than his predecessor, and banning known toxic chemicals would be a great place to start. We’re calling on Wheeler to take action on one of the most toxic chemicals that Pruitt failed to regulate. TCE, or trichloroethylene, is a carcinogen found in the tap water supplies of 14 million Americans. It should have been banned years ago, and now is the time to get rid of it.

Take action and tell Wheeler to protect Americans by banning this harmful chemical.
