I always said there was something in the water!
Now it would seem that my little catchphrase is actually right! Rather than regurgitate what you can already find on the blogs, I strongly suggest that you check out Michael Childs blog on the subject here.
It's all rather worrying really isn't it? If you're not sure what Cyclohexanone is or you find most of the stuff on the internet a bit hard to understand, then basically...................
It is a colorless, oily liquid with an odor reminiscent of peppermint oil and acetone. Over time, the color of the liquid changes to yellow. Cyclohexanone is slightly soluble in water (5-10 g/100 ml), but miscible with the most common organic solvents. Cyclohexanone is employed as an industrial solvent and it is also used in the production of adipic acid, cyclohexanone resins, caprolactam and nylon 6.
I could go on but in short, it's toxic! Oh yes, and it could be in our water supply!
Now I'm sure that the clean up operation is pretty strict but it does seem a little odd that we're only really hearing about it now after 12 years. THAT is what concerns me.
The problem is, now I'm wondering what else has happend in the past that we should really have been told about? That's the $64,000 question!
It pains me to say it but serial antagonist "Rick" has really done some work of importance here for everyone in Thanet. Hopefully more will come to light as time moves on (although let hope it's not in another 12 years!)
I do wonder though if some of it has escaped in the water though, what with Eastcliff Richard's recent hissy fit and Maisiegrace's view of Margate through rose tinted specs!
