Perchlorate contamination

This article talks about a city whose water supply was contaminated with perchlorates. Perchlorate are often used in explosives and rockets as an oxidizer. In this case they came from a military facility.

I think I know what will happen next. The Marines will first say there is no danger. Then they will use the defense of "national security" to protect themselves. I wrote about the national security argument here.
