Soldiers exposed to toxic chemical in Iraq

Posted on October 12th, 2011 No Comments

Nearly a thousand soldiers and civilian employees working for the Department of Defense have been exposed to the toxic substance sodium dichromate. The exposure occurred over a five month period while they worked in a water treatment plant in Iraq.

Sodium dichromate is a known carcinogen that can cause skin and breathing problems as well as cancer. The Oregon National Guard has filed a law suit against Kellogg, Brown, and Root, the contracting company that oversaw the water treatment plant. Soldiers accuse the company of knowingly exposing workers to the toxic substance, a claim KBR denies.

Many U.S. senators are pleased with the filing of the lawsuit, as many urged a federal inspector to evaluate the plant.
