Atmospheric release of BPA may reach nearby waterways

19 mayo 2015

Existing research has determined that harmful concentrations of Bisphenol-A (BPA) have been deposited directly into rivers and streams by municipal or industrial wastewater. Now, researchers have assessed Missouri water quality near industrial sites permitted to release BPA into the air. Scientists now believe that atmospheric releases may create a concern for contamination of local surface water leading to human and wildlife exposure.
