How Much Is Enough?

The California Department of Toxic Substances Control has approved a 50% increase from 4 to 6 ppb in the amount of perchlorate, a naturally occurring chemical, but also a component of rocket fuel.

The Ventura County Star reports that the change may benefit the Boeing Rocketdyne Santa Susana laboratory. You can view the lab's monitoring test results here.

The USEPA still has to approve the change. The defense industry is seeking a limit of 7 ppb, and the USEPA wants the limit in the 1 - 2 ppb range. 1 ppb is equivalent to a single drop in an Olympic-sized swimming pool.
