Midtennwaterproblem.com was created in an effort to consult on environmental issues related to water in the Middle Tennessee area and abroad. We try to provide an extensive look at what our cities offer us at the tap and what's waiting for us under ground and in our rivers.

"Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans."  -Jacques-Yves Cousteau


"The most current findings from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) indicate that virtually every home in America has a detectable level in the air of chloroform gas, a derivative of chlorine and a known carcinogen, due to chlorine and showering."

"Tennessee residents are consuming several surprising compounds such as caffeine, hand sanitizers, Ibuprofen, Prozac and insect repellant. These are compounds that aren't typically monitored in drinking water."

"EPA proposed to classify chromium-6 as likely to be carcinogenic to humans when ingested... Chromium compounds are very persistent in water as sediments."

"The Holt family said toxins from the landfill have seeped into their well water. As a result, the family has experienced a number of health problems. 'I think people should stand up and take back their health, take back their communities,' said Sheila Holt-Orsted."

"Any exposure to radiation increases the risk of damage to tissues, cells, DNA and other vital molecules, potentially causing genetic mutations, cancers, luekemias, birth defects, and reproductive, cardiovascular, endocrine, and immune system disorders."
