EWG calls on state and agriculture to act on nitrate contamination

Animal waste and fertilizer from farming operations in California’s Salinas Valley and Tulare Lake Basin are the source of 96 percent of the nitrate contamination in the area’s groundwater, a new study commissioned by the State Water Resources Control Board found.

Researchers at the University of California at Davis concluded that 254,000 people in the area, which includes Fresno, Tulare, Kings and Kern counties, “are currently at risk for nitrate contamination of their drinking water,” including 34,000 people who rely on private wells or local small water systems.
The UC/Davis study is being delivered today (March 13) to California legislators considering ways to “improve understanding of the causes of [nitrate] groundwater contamination, identify potential remediation solutions and funding sources to recover costs expended by the state…” The legislature voted in 2008 to have the water resources board commission the study.

“This report must spur the Central Coast water board to issue its long delayed order requiring farmers to address severe pollution of ground and surface water without delay,” said Kari Hamerschlag, senior analyst at Environmental Working Group who focuses on California agriculture. The Central Coast Regional Water Quality Control Board is scheduled to release its proposed order at a hearing on Wednesday (March 14). For nearly 20 years, EWG has been calling attention to the health dangers of nitrate contamination in drinking water, which is especially dangerous to infants and has been linked to cancer and reproductive problems in adults.

“The study’s findings point to the urgent need for more resources to cleanup and protect drinking water and reduce the amount fertilizer percolating into groundwater from irrigated fields. Otherwise, millions of Californians will continue to drink contaminated water,” said Hamerschlag. “We hope the state will move quickly to impose a fee on fertilizer sales, which is one of the report’s major recommendations.”

“This report should also be a wake-up call to the state’s Congressional delegation to fight hard in the farm bill deliberations to maintain current spending on federal conservation programs, which are in serious jeopardy,” Hamerschlag added. “These funds must be targeted to the regions in California that are suffering from the most significant water contamination threats.”

U.S. Department of Agriculture conservation programs are a vital source of funding and technical assistance that helps farmers implement practices that use nitrogen fertilizers efficiently and reduce nitrogen runoff into groundwater. In 2010, California spent $134.7 million to support farmers in protecting vital water, soil, air and wildlife resources.

Some of the things people are saying about the NHF

"Thank you for speaking out for us! I am very grateful for the National Health Federation in helping us all protect our rights for informed and even self treatment. I've had more success in getting better results with so-called 'alternative' treatments than I have EVER experienced with 'conventional' medicine."
—Pablo A.





"Thank you for the truth!"
—Lana D.
"This (the NHF) is OUR Army... one of the few organizations that actually represent the general public... who really take the fight to the corporate interests that care about greed above all—despite the cost in human suffering. This is the real deal... The two lead 'ass kickers' are Scott Tips and Kat Carroll, but they will tell you right off that every volunteer is worth their weight in selenium in this fight. If only you would 'kick the tires' of the NHF. See for yourself the integrity and passion of this dedicated group. They have been around for a long time... This current group is as talented, keen, realistic, practical and flat out 'in your face' as I can imagine."
—Thomas C.
"The NHF, and Scott Tips in particular, are largely unsung heroes protecting our health at national and international levels… There really is no other organization filling the role of speaking truth and guiding legislators in this powerful (Codex) forum. If you are concerned about our food supply, then please consider supporting Scott and the NHF."
—Jon E.
