The Department of Defense and the California EPA have created a procedure for prioritizing perchlorate sampling at DOD sites in the state. The first-of-its-kind protocol provides guidance to both state and federal officials on how to deal with military sites where perchlorate has likely been discharged in the proximity of drinking water supplies. The agreement could have national implications because while no other state has a similar protocol, 21 additional states have similar perchlorate issues.
