What is 1,4-dioxane and why did Tri-County Health Department notify me about this contaminant?
1,4-dioxane has recently been identified as a potential chemical of concern by EPA. Tri-County Health Department (TCHD) is assisting the Army and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in sampling private wells to gain a better understanding of the distribution and potential source of this chemical. At the present time there is a state standard for the treatment of this water but there is no federal or state standard for this chemical in drinking water. The EPA is working on developing an appropriate standard.
