What's At Stake

Trichloroethylene (TCE) is a highly toxic solvent commonly used in stain removers, degreasers, and a broad range of industrial processes and consumer products like paints and auto brake cleaners. This widespread use has contaminated drinking water supplies for 19 million people and is known to remain in soil and groundwater for long periods of time.
