MERRIMACK — An environmental activist has written a letter to the New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services requesting that all Merrimack residents receive blood testing for a potentially cancer-causing chemical.
The New Hampshire Department of Health and Human Services randomly selected 200 public water customers to be blood tested for a potentially cancer-causing chemical, after it was found that Merrimack's public water had perfluorochemicals (PFCs) in it.
Environmental activist Erin Brockovich has requested that the entire community of Merrimack receives blood tests, as opposed to a random sample.
"Starting a blood testing program is a positive step, but only 200 people will be able to understand the extent of their exposure to the chemicals, while over 7,000 other residents drinking contaminated public water will be kept in the dark," Brockovich wrote on Facebook.
