After multiple KPRC 2 investigations, members of Congress demand change from EPA
HOUSTON - On Friday, a dozen members of Congress wrote a letter to the head of the Environmental Protection Agency demanding a standard for chromium-6 in drinking water. For several years, KPRC 2 Investigates has exposed elevated levels of the toxic, cancer-causing chemical in the drinking water in the Houston area. Chromium-6, the hexavalent form of the element, is not regulated in drinking water, only total chromium. Rep. Al Green is leading the push for this new standard in drinking water.
