Description

The Wall Street Journal reports on how the Bush administration reversed standards set for arsenic levels in drinking water set by the Clinton administration. Representitives from Industry claim that the expense of reducing arsenic is not justified by the scientific data. "'At the level of 50 parts per billion,' says Dr. Marshall, referring to the EPA standard now restored by President Bush, 'arsenic is killing a lot of people in Chile,'" the Journal reported.
