EPA Silent on Benzene Levels After Hurricane Harvey

 

The EPA is remaining silent about the benzene levels in neighborhoods around the Houston Ship Channel immediately after Hurricane Harvey. According to an article published by The Texas Tribune, the EPA monitored for benzene and other toxic pollutants the week after Harvey crippled the Houston area. The EPA has yet to release its monitoring data, but did say that the levels met Texas guidelines. Monitoring of the same area by private environmental groups paint a much different picture. It is widely accepted that the only safe level of benzene exposure is “zero”.
