Rialto water study urged Contaminant stirs concern Jason Pesick, Staff Writer San Bernardino County Sun (CA) August 5, 2007RIALTO - Marene Deischer is convinced perchlorate in the city's drinking water is responsible for her son's health problems.
Jerry Deischer's thyroid gland doesn't function. He has to be given testosterone, artificial growth hormones and drugs that boost his weak immune system.
He uses a wheelchair, wears supportive gear, has mild mental retardation, hearing loss and, at 22, can't speak.

After finding little relief at either the federal or regional level, when the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency held back and the Santa Ana Regional Water Quality Control board faltered, the city now has its sights set on the state hearing, where the state Water Resource Control Board is prosecuting three of the alleged corporate polluters. They are accused of indiscriminately dumping perchlorate, the main ingredient in rocket fuel and other explosives, where it would seep into the groundwater and then not doing anything about it.
