Recently, media attention has been focusing on chromium 6, which is typically found in groundwater. Chromium 6 can be naturally occurring, or the result of certain industrial activities such as metal plating. The U. S .Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) limits Chromium 6 as part of total chromium limits. The current limit for total chromium is 100 parts per billion (ppb). Chandler’s total chromium levels are well below the EPA standard, ranging from 1-32 ppb.
The Environmental Protection Agency is finalizing a human health assessment that is expected to determine whether a new standard should be set. Chandler will meet or surpass any standard for chromium 6 that the EPA may set.
