– This is Red Alert for the people that are in the immediate surrounding are of East Palestine and the recent derailment.
Newly released data shows soil in the Ohio town of East Palestine – scene of a recent catastrophic train crash and chemical spill – contains dioxin levels hundreds of times greater than the exposure threshold above which Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) scientists in 2010 found poses MAJOR Health Risks!
Moreover, EPA scientists in 2010 put the Major Health risk threshold for dioxins in residential soil at ONLY 3.7 ppt, and the agency recommended lowering the cleanup trigger to 72 ppt.
East Palestine soil showed levels of “2,3,7,8 TCDD toxicity equivalence” of 700 parts per trillion (ppt). The level at which the EPA will initiate cleanup action in residential areas is 1,000 ppt.
However, the cleanup triggers are much lower in many states – 90 ppt in Michigan, and 50 ppt in California.
