Bluegills on Duty Again

Environmental scientists are using bluefish in a new early warning system called IAC 1090 or the "intelligent Aquatic BioMonitoring System." Because their behavior changes when there are toxins in the water, they serve as an early-warning system. When pollutants are present, the fish change their breathing patterns.

To protect the fish, each fish is replaced with a new fish after spending three weeks monitoring water supplies. The system, originally developed by the Army, is now available to cities and towns.  It is in use in New York, San Francisco, and Washington.

The Waterfall previously covered a story about
anti-terrorist bluegills.

Breast Cancer Action
Success Story on Water Bottles

Rachael Rawlins, a member of Breast Cancer Action, joined scientists and testified to the FDA. This contributed to the FDA overturning their earlier ruling on the safety of bisphenol-A (BPA). BPA is a compound found in food containers like plastic baby bottles and water bottles. It's been found to be linked to cancer and other diseases.

The FDA previously ignored dozens of highly regarded studies and approved BPA based on two studies funded by the American Plastics Council
. The FDA was forced to publicly admit that they had made a mistake.

MTBE Settlement In Massachusetts

83 Massachusetts towns are receiving settlement money from a lawsuit related to the a gasoline additive in public drinking-water supplies. The settlement amounts range from $200,000 to more than $1.8 million. In lower concentrations, the fuel additive MTBE, or methyl tertiary butyl ether, can render water undrinkable due to a turpentine-like taste and smell. At higher rates, it may be a carcinogen. Nationwide, oil companies are paying out $423 million to water districts in 17 states, with $83 million going to Massachusetts.

Yes, our filters take out MTBE.
