5 July 07 - Expert Witness Statement - Dioxin in the Ship's Water System
Of the 100% of the estuarine water taken into the evaporative process only approximately 15 to 20% of this was carried over and condensed into potable water. During laboratory experiments, this distilled water was shown to have accumulated between 60 and 80% of the dioxins from the raw water, and the longer the distillation process was carried out the more highly contaminated the made water in the tanks became.
