You have until January 15, 2008 to notify Governor Ritter that the proposed change in the reporting of levels of NDMA, a proven carcinogen, should not be allowed. This crap in our drinking water can kill or deform our babies.

On January 15, 2008, The Colorado Water Quality Control Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment (CDPHE) is proposing to change the level of reporting for NDMA, a potent carcinogen. Under the plan, a lab in Colorado would not have to report detections of NDMA in submitted samples unless the level was nearly 73,000 times above that considered safe for public health protection. Currently, the state standard for NDMA is 0.69 parts per trillion – an amount equivalent to less that half a teaspoon of the chemical in 500 Olympic sized swimming pools. Yet under the proposal, while the standard would remain unchanged, the level at which its presence would have to be reported would be raised to 50,000 parts per trillion. Governor Ritter, please do not allow this to happen.
