Contaminated Water

Contaminated WaterMany carcinogens and dangerous chemicals can seep into your drinking water. In almost every case, the damage could have been prevented if companies and governments safeguarded citizens from toxic contaminants.

In 2016, many homes were tested for contaminated water in the community of North Bennington, Vermont. The test results found drinking water was heavily contaminated with a chemical known as perfluorooctanoic acid, or PFOA. In some cases, drinking water was found to contain PFOA in concentrations more than 10 times the recommended limit.

Unfortunately, the deadly chemical has been cropping up in water supplies across the nation; including Vermont and New York. Each time, the contamination has occurred near sites or former sites of chemical or plastics factories.

PFOA was commonly used to manufacture non-stick (Teflon) products, stain-resistant carpets and microwavable bags but it has recently been phased-out of many production lines due to health concerns.

Many doctors have linked PFOA to some cancers, pregnancy complications and other diseases.

If your drinking water has been contaminated with PFOA, the companies responsible for the contamination could be held liable for any adverse health effects. The contaminated water attorneys at Cellino & Barnes will review your case for free.
