Native American tribes fight for clean water and more money

"Just keep in mind the EPA is already one of the most underfunded regulatory agencies," said Chris Shuey, a research director at the Southwest Research and Information Center who studies the effect of uranium exposure on Navajo children.
Public health experts MacKenzie and Shuey, however, would consider 10 years of uranium contamination as dangerous chronic exposure. Documents show the small water provider largely ignored the violations, and it later told residents they needed more money to do additional testing, Shuey said. Shuey said this disparity "casts doubt" on whether the EPA is serious about enforcing standards. From what he's observed, bringing systems into compliance costs money the agency simply doesn't have. Shuey has more than three decades of experience studying water contamination in the Navajo Nation. He said the trouble with contamination and human health is that it's incredibly hard to prove causality, making it easier to delay or deny a response. "People say I've got this cancer or that cancer, but until there's a formal health study, you can't tell," he said.


Fear of the unknown: The effect of contaminated water on health

Chris Shuey, a researcher at the Southwest Research and Information Center, studies uranium contamination in drinking water.
He explained why finding these links is such a challenge. "Health researchers live in a world of gray. It's never black and white," he said. "One of the biggest challenges is that you need a lot of people over a fairly significant period of time to assess them, and then you need additional time to analyze all of the data, which costs a lot of money." Shuey said because people are exposed to so many potential environmental contaminants, it's hard to point the blame at one specific source. "We have to go over so many medical records, analyze so much data and carry out surveys before we can even begin to make a link," he said.
