The EPA loves flouride in water
Ninety percent of artificially fluoridated water supplies in the U.S. do not purchase pharmaceutical grade fluoride but instead purchase fluosilicic acid, a waste product mainly of the phosphate fertilizer industry.

The fluosilicic acid is extracted from wet scrubbers, according to Michael Connett, Research Director of the Fluoride Action Network, an international coalition of scientists, medical professionals, environmentalists, and others working for fluoride awareness. Connett describes wet scrubbers as pollution management tools that were devised to capture the fluoride gases produced during phosphate fertilizer production. The designated hazardous waste, which is too toxic to be dumped in rivers or soil, is recovered from the scrubbers, packaged unrefined, and sent out to municipalities across the U.S. ready to be applied to local drinking water.

In a Canadian Broadcasting Company piece from 1967 called “Air of Death,” the severe toxicity of the waste from the fertilizer industry and the need for pollution control is clear.

What the flying fvck are you talking about?

People who support coal don`t support poisoning of water resources. No side is arguing for more contamination you ass hat.
Secondly, what do you mean by "chemical companies"? Are you agianst chemicals? Or are you suggesting that there is a company specifically in business manufacturing... dem der "bad" ol kemkals to put in r drikun wadder?
Lastly, EPA hasn`t vanished. This still happened with a full staff working at the regional office. Would you like for me to post thier number? You can call and ask them if they watched it as it happened or were informed after it hapened. Because if you`re trying to imply EPA would have stopped it (acting as a safety net or big brother) then you just pointed out that it`s thier fault it happened as well.

Meh.
When society has grown so much we don`t care about our day to day survival and living condition it means one of two things... We over stayed our welcome or we should change our name to China and have fun playing hide and go seek with our glowing children.

I think the point is that the company never reported the leak, but that the EPA had to go out and find it. Coal, energy and chemical interests have long sought to gut the EPA and take all of its teeth, thus leaving the companies to do as they please. In other words, if the coal industry had its way, this leak wouldn't have been uncovered until half of the Kanawha valley was sick. Need another hint at the connections? Look it up and you'll find Freedom is also a contributor to the Friends of Coal.

This was not the. "Coal company " you idiot. Freedom industries manufactures chemicals for dust control, highway construction, water treatment plants and coal industries. All you obamanites can't wait to slam coal any chance you get.

Accidents happen, mistakes are made reguardless of what the EPA does or does not do. Your gov't hates you. They only care about themselves. My suggestion is to take you and your family and go off the grid. Complete self-reliance!

No, the point is it was an accident. The water company isn`t out to poison the water supply, nor did they intentionally do so for profit margins. It would have happened with or without the EPA.

And that`s totally assuming all your crazy rant which is nothing but assumptions. Coal bad, chemicals bad. Can we work Bush in there too?
I`d hate to live in your fantasy world where you can`t even take a sip of water without being thankful big brother is holding your sippy cup correctly.

Lack of proper regulation is partially to blame.

Freedom Industries is exempt from DEP inspections and permitting since it stores chemicals, and doesn't produce them.

See what I'm getting at?
