Texas authorities actively hid evidence of
in drinking water

(NaturalNews) TV station KHOU of Texas,
reported a cover up conspiracy regarding radioactive levels
in Texas drinking water in May 2011. The cover up efforts
were known as high as the Texas governor Rick Perry's office
and allowed to continue. In a small way, this reflects
what's been happening with the Fukushima radioactivity
reports that affect the world.
High levels of radioactive radium were being discovered in
excavated water pipes and discarded water heaters throughout
parts of Central Texas recently. Those pipes and water
heaters were so radioactive that the junk yard in Brady, TX
could not take them. The pipes had only been in the ground
transporting water from the area's Hickory Aquifer for five
The type of radiation is alpha radiation, which is emitted
from radionuclides such as radium and uranium that occur
naturally beneath the earth's surface. External alpha
radiation is not considered much of a health hazard. But
ingesting even a small amount from water creates DNA damage,
leading to a plethora of health problems.
Even the water level alpha radiation exposure allowed by EPA
standards could result in one in every 1,000 consumers
getting cancer. But health experts have projected one in 400
locals could wind up with cancer with the current levels of
radiation. Over 200,000 persons depend on water from the
Hickory Aquifer and private wells in that area.
If EPA water radiation standards are exceeded, local area
environmental commissions are required to notify the public.
There have been no public notices, because the Texas
Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ) fudged their test
results each year, creating lower radioactive reports than
the actual readings.
The Conspiracy to Hide Radiation Readings
Sloppiness and random errors did not create the lower
readings. According to the KHOU investigation, this was a
TCEQ policy to knowingly evade EPA enforcement. Radioactive
readings were subtracted from submitted reports as a matter
of policy. This was known throughout the TCEQ agency and
The KHOU investigative team used the state attorney general
to obtain a 2001 white paper from TCEQ scientists addressing
concerns over high radium levels in Central Texas drinking
water. TCEQ's public water manager denied ever seeing that
paper even after the TV station produced a 2010 version
which he had signed. The TCEQ's public water manager lied on
camera. How did he get away with that? Because he's not the
only one in on it.
The investigative team acquired documentation that included
a trail of Texas bureaucrats and politicians leading all the
way to Governor Rick Perry's office. All of them knew of
this situation. No one notified anyone who might be able to
help while ignoring 200,000 Texans who were being exposed to
A concerned TCEQ employee was told "this is the way we've
been doing this for as long as I know." The fix was in as a
matter of policy that the state officials of Texas had long
accepted as business as usual. But why?
Correcting EPA violations is expensive. And refusing to
correct them can ultimately result in a state's losing
control over its water supply.
According to one former TCEQ commissioner, the radium level
subtractions were a good policy because the EPA's limits
were too stringent. In other words, the TCEQ didn't like the
EPA standards regardless of the science behind them.
It wasn't until a 2008 EPA audit that this situation started
coming to light, but next to nothing is being done about it.
It's no secret that the EPA has been watered down
considerably over the last decade and a half. So the
bureaucratic paper shuffling, denial, and political
boilerplate responses have continued from 2008 to this day.
Withholding radioactivity danger is not restricted to the
Texas government. Japan's Fukushima official denials
continue with MSM complicity. There are 23 USA nuclear
plants that may be leaking. Two Missouri area nuclear plants
were surrounded by flooding for some time. Hardly any of
this has been covered by the national media.
You can't depend on government solutions when governments
refuse to disclose what's really happening and the
mainstream media refuses to investigate.
