UMaine Nursing Student Presentation Cited in BDN Article

A presentation made by University of Maine nursing students at a Veazie town council meeting was cited in the Bangor Daily News article “Orono-Veazie Water District consumers raise concerns about potential carcinogen.” The students presented on the health effects of trihalomethanes (THMs), which are formed when chlorine and other disinfectants are mixed with organic matter, after residents showed concern over chemicals in their water. The students said exposure can lead to an increased risk of bladder, colon and rectal cancer. UMaine also released a statement about its water, saying the university “has been in contact with the Orono-Veazie Water District and is aware that it is currently in compliance for 2013.”
