Tainted milk raises concerns

Yuma Sun (AZ)
June 23, 2004

A Yuma-area researcher is broadening his studies of the possible impact
of a rocket fuel chemical contaminating the Colorado River even as an
environmental group announced that the same chemical has been found in
milk in California.

Tuesday's announcement of the milk study by the Environmental Working
Group is the latest development in the ongoing dispute over perchlorate,
a leftover from the Cold War that has been seeping into the Colorado
River and contaminating the water source for millions of people.

Colorado River water also irrigates 1.4 million acres of farmland in
Southern California and Arizona, including Imperial County, California's
leading alfalfa producer for that state's dairy cows.
