Study Finds Water Safe

The perchlorate comes from the old Naval Weapons Industrial Reserve
Plant site in McGregor.

Local leaders met in McGregor Monday morning to deliver the good news.
That perchlorate contamination that turned up in area waterways is not a
risk to the half million Central Texans who drink the water.

Army Corps of Engineers Colonel John Minahan says, "Based on the data
collected during this study, we found that water users are not at risk
for exposure to perchlorate, consumption of cattle raised in the area
presents no risk for exposure, and the bacteria in Lake Belton actually
breaks down the perchlorate to harmless chemicals."

Congress commissioned the Army Corps of Engineers to study the effects
of perchlorate three years ago.
