HOUSTON -- Hundreds of water providers around the Gulf Coast region are providing their customers with drinking water that contains radioactive contaminants that raise health risks, according to state lab results and public health scientists.
What's more, 11 News I-Team Chief Investigative Reporter Mark Greenblatt discovered that for more than 20 years, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality under-reported the amount of radiation found in drinking water provided by communities all across Texas.
As a result, health risks to people consuming the water have been underestimated in many water systems where radioactive contaminants are present.
