The health authorities are currently monitoring tap water in 45 municipalities in Hauts-de-France. In the fall, 60 additional municipalities will be subject to similar measures. A pesticide, which was used until 2020 in the cultivation of beets, is sought.

Tap water has been reinforced in 45 municipalities in the Hauts-de-France, and 60 others will be in the fall, before possible consumption restriction measures, in order to analyze the presence A pesticide intended for the cultivation of beets, said the ARS (Regional Health Agency) this Thursday.

The Hauts-de-France Regional Health Agency will monitor the concentration of chloridazone metabolite water, a sub-product of chloridazone, pesticide mainly used in the cultivation of beets until 2020.

NYC Mayor Eric Adams rages at staff for not telling him sooner about ARSENIC in public housing

  NYC Mayor Eric Adams rages at staff for not telling him sooner about ARSENIC in public housing Adams said that he wasn't told about the arsenic-laced water at the Riis Houses in the East Village until the next day which goes against city protocol. It's also been claimed that the 4,000 tenants living in the block may not have been told about the issue for two weeks. The Mayor revealed that he has now lodged a review to find out when the Department of Environmental Protection found out about the water problem - since there may have been a communication issue among staff.

of controls By "precautionary principle"

This increased monitoring was decided after the highlighting of this product in certain municipalities at levels sometimes higher than the transitional threshold of 3 micrograms per liter determined in mid-June by the Ministry of Health.

The ARS specifies that these controls, provided for by European regulations, respond to a precautionary principle, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) having in 2007 dismissed a risk to human health associated with these metabolites.

A first reinforced monitoring phase has already been set up by the ARS and the prefectures concerned in 45 municipalities where the rate is greater than 3 micrograms per liter (including 39 in the Aisne), which represents 13,500 inhabitants.

Here’s where water in the U.S. is contaminated and why

  Here’s where water in the U.S. is contaminated and why Cities across the United States are experiencing water contamination. Here’s what we know.150,000 residents in Jackson don’t have safe drinking water due to damage to a water plant pump. NPR reported the water pump was unable to keep up with the historic rainfall in Mississippi, causing a severe drop in water pressure.

60 municipalities will be added to the fall

tap water will be analyzed there every 15 days until the end of September. Depending on the results, the ARS could recommend to the prefectures of the consumption of tap water for food for the municipalities whose average value will continue to exceed this transitional threshold.

A same reinforced monitoring is also scheduled in the fall in 60 other municipalities in the region (40 of which in Aisne) where the concentration is between 2 and 3 micrograms per liter in order to ensure that the average rates are Not, over time, greater than 3 micrograms per liter.

Water of some 2,200 municipalities whose metabolite content is between 0.1 and 2 micrograms per liter, it will be able to continue to be consumed.

"We are extremely cautious"

non -compliant is not necessarily non -consumable, insisted Thomas Campeaux on Wednesday, the prefect of L'Aisne, department mainly affected . In France, we are extremely careful. This is the first time that we have taken as many measures for a metabolite that we do not know.

The National Agency for Food, Environmental and Work Health Safety (ANSES) has been responsible for fixing a definitive maximum value for concentration of chloridazone metabolites, to replace the 3 micrograms per liter fixed by the government .
