Results showed that at the four sites tested for very severe levels of cyanide, high levels of the chemical were not detected.
Please note that these results show that local water supplies are not currently severely contaminated with cyanide.
They do not, however, prove or disprove the presence of low levels of cyanide in Tianjin’s water compared to normal surface water concentration.
They also do not prove or disprove the presence of other hazardous chemicals in the water.
Greenpeace reiterates its call for authorities to implement a comprehensive survey of hazardous chemicals currently present in air and water supplies and make public all information.
Greenpeace will continue to monitor the situation around the blast site in Tianjin and will continue to make public our latest findings.
