Frequent Questions

5. How does chlordane get into my drinking water?

Chlordane has been released into the environment primarily from its application as an insecticide. Chlordane may persist for long periods of time in air, soil and water.

A federal law called the Emergency Planning and Community Right to Know Act (EPCRA) requires facilities in certain industries, which manufacture, process, or use significant amounts of toxic chemicals, to report annually on their releases of these chemicals. For more information on the uses and releases of chemicals in your state, contact the Community Right-to-Know Hotline: (800) 424-9346.
