As a naturally occurring element, Mercury is found in the water, air, and soil. Mercury pollution is a threat to our physical health as well as to our environment. Even in small amounts, exposure to mercury contamination can have adverse effects on our health.

How Does Trichloroethylene Get into Your Drinking Water?

The sweet smelling organic liquid can be quickly absorbed by groundwater and must be removed from sub-surface environments to prevent runoff and leakage into water systems. The most common cause of trichloroethylene in drinking water is improper storage and disposal of the chemical waste. Therefore, private wells located nearby industrial companies should check their water on a regular basis to monitor the potential presence of the pollutant in their drinking water.

What are the Health Risks Associated with Trichloroethylene?

Exposure to trichloroethylene-contaminated drinking water may result in a variety of health issues depending on the contaminant’s level of concentration in the water source. Trichloroethylene may damage the central nervous system, liver, kidney, as well as the male reproductive system. A higher level of exposure may lead to an increased risk of getting cancer. Long-term exposure to the contaminant may also increase the risk of autoimmune disease.

What is the Best Reduction Media for Removing Trichloroethylene from Drinking Water?

The use of granular activated carbon (GAC) in addition to packed tower aeration is an effective treatment method in the removal of trichloroethylene from drinking water. Water filter systems can help get rid of the contaminant so it won’t affect the health of your loved ones. AquaOx’s whole house water filters are packed with premium granular activated carbon to make sure your family drinks fresh, clean, and safe water right from the faucet.

Trichloroethylene (TCE) is an industrial solvent that contaminates ground water and is also found in household and consumer products such as paint removers, correction fluid etc. Classified by IARC as probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A) and as ‘reasonably anticipated to be carcinogenic to humans’ by NTP. Because it is volatile it moves from the water to the air when you bathe, shower, wash dishes, or flush a toilet. TCE is strongly associated with kidney, liver, and biliary cancers, and is a suspected carcinogen for cervical cancer, Hodgkin and non-Hodgkin lymphomas, and leukemia.
