Tap water at Trump National Golf Course contaminated with toxic 'forever chemicals'

The Environmental Working Group shows that Trump's golf course is one of over 500 cases of New Jersey water sources containing 'forever chemicals.'

Millions of Americans are drinking water that is contaminated yet legal The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection reports 517 water systems in the state have been contaminated by these chemicals. EWG reports that over 1,000 water systems nationwide are affected by PFAS. PFOA, which was originally manufactured by DuPont for Teflon cookware, is believed to cause liver, testicular, and kidney cancer. In a press release, EWG shared that PFOA levels reached 3.5 and 3.6 parts per trillion at Trump's Jersey golf course. This is much higher than the EWG's safety threshold, which recommends that any more than 1 ppt as unsafe for human consumption. Despite research from EWG and independent scientists, the Safe Drinking Water Act does not place a legal limit on PFAS. The Trump National Golf Course in Bedminister, New Jersey has shown high levels of toxic chemicals in their drinking water. Trump has used the private golf club to hold meetings in the past. Drew Angerer/Getty A relatively simple solution exists to reduce PFAS in water. Scott Faber, EWG's vice president for government affairs, likened the Granular Activated Carbon filtration system to a"really big Brita filter." It works by"flushing the contaminated water over a bed of carbon, and the PFAS attaches to the carbon so it doesn't wind up in the filtered water," Faber told Newsweek. "There are filtration systems that are already being adopted around the country at every scale you can imagine." EWG President Ken Cook condemned the private club for charging expensive membership fees while failing to provide something as fundamental as suitable drinking water."I suppose one would hope after they've spent more than a quarter of million just to get in the door, President Trump could at least give his members filtered drinking water free of cancer-causing chemicals," he said. Cook pointed to the many other cases of PFOA contaminated drinking water, explaining that the golf course is a microcosm of a larger problem."But, if he's going to refuse to enact policies to clean up drinking water contamination for the rest of the country, why should the foursome waiting to tee off on the back nine be treated any different?" he added. The president may be getting a literal taste of his own medicine, according to Faber."I think it's sadly ironic that a President who has done more to weaken clean water protections has been serving contaminated water to his own guests," he told Newsweek.

They have to bathe(or shower) in that tap water after all.

That explains a lot😉 . 'I think it's sadly ironic that a President who has done more to weaken clean water protections has been serving contaminated water to his own guests,' he told Newsweek. Maybe irony is not the correct word. Not surprised, he doesn’t care.
