Elevated cancer rates found south of Colorado Springs where water supplies contain toxic chemicals

State health officials have found elevated cancer rates among residents of an area south of Colorado Springs where public water supplies contain toxic chemicals at levels exceeding an EPA health limit.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment emphasized, in a preliminary health assessment, that there’s no established link between these perflourinated chemicals (PFCs) and the elevated kidney, lung and bladder cancer documented in Security, Widefield and Fountain.
