According to many experts, water is the most important natural resource we have in the world. Unfortunately, many agricultural and industrial processes endanger our water supply by infusing it with toxic and occasionally deadly chemicals. A water contamination law firm can help you and your community demand compensation and cleanup of these toxic chemicals. Corporations are averse to settling in court because a settlement might set a precedent that would endanger future business.
Types of water contamination issues that our attorneys handle include:
- Toxic Torts
- Herbicide Contamination
- Pesticide Contamination
- Rodenticide Contamination
- Oil and Natural Gas Spills
- Chemical Spills
- Hydraulic Fracturing or ‘Fracking’
- Atrazine Contamination
- Medical Waste Contamination
- Superfund Sites
- Radiation and Radioactive Waste
- Heavy Metal Contamination
It is the job of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to regulate contamination; laws such as the Clean Water Act and the Safe Drinking Water Act are intended to protect Americans from water contamination. However, each year new chemicals are invented that might pose a threat to our nation’s water supply. Sometimes firms refuse to release the chemical compounds that they use to impede regulation (such is the case with the chemical mixture used by natural gas companies for fracking). It is for this reason that it is crucial for private citizens and local organizations to step up and take action against potential threats to the health of everybody who showers, eats food, drinks water, and washes dishes.
Water contamination can be a risk to human health in many ways. Clearly, it depends on which contaminant is present. While some contaminants might only be harmful if ingested orally, others might have a noxious effect on skin. Some contaminants can even be inhaled.
Our environmental cleanup attorneys can help you or your community demand that contaminated water supplies be sanitized. Because a cleanup is an expensive process it is difficult to unilaterally initiate it. Furthermore, we believe that the parties responsible for their contamination should also be responsible for cleaning up after themselves. Human health and our food supply should not be endangered because of negative externalities.
