The Sierra Club Southeast Gateway Group will host a seminar about the health effects of excess molybdenum in our drinking water.
A Clean Wisconsin study released last fall found unsafe levels of molybdenum and other contaminants in both school and residential wells throughout Racine, Kenosha, Milwaukee, and Waukesha counties.
These contaminated wells appear to be located near sites where over one million tons of coal ash has been used in various projects; including spreading on farm fields and recreational trails, and put in structural fill under roadways and schools. Clean Wisconsin discovered that wells closer to coal ash “reuse” sites were likely to have higher levels of molybdenum contamination.
Tyson Cook, the lead author of the study’s report, will help us explore this important issue on Thursday, February 19 at 6:30 p.m. at the SC Johnson/Gateway Technical College IMET Center. 2320 Renaissance Blvd, in Sturtevant,
