Illinois is among the worst states for contaminated drinking water as well as for violations to drinking water systems, a new report shows. Dangerous ‘forever chemicals were found in the drinking water of thousands of Illinois residents.
More than 100 drinking water systems across Illinois, including some in the Chicago area, have tested positive for measurable levels of harmful contaminants known as “forever chemicals”. Those chemicals are linked to cancer, liver damage, high blood pressure, and other health threats.
In the Chicago- Lake Forest, Waukegan, North Chicago, South Elgin, and Crest Hill near Joliet are among the water systems that are showing readings of a class of chemicals known as PFAS, short for perfluroalkyl and polyfluroalkyl substances. In most cases, the levels are very low, though the widespread presence is a concern.
Human testing suggests the chemicals may decrease infant birth weights, inhibit vaccine response in children. Increase the risk of kidney or testicular cancer, lead to high blood pressure and cholesterol levels, and cause liver damage. Animal testing found the chemicals can cause birth defects and developmental issues.
