EPA chief Michael Reagan warned Ohio parents to keep their children out of local creeks and streams after a toxic chemical mushroom cloud exploded in early February.
Reagan left for East Palestine on Wednesday. He was asked if he would let his children play in streams.
Correspondent: “Commissioner, I ask you very quickly, will you allow your children to touch the water? We saw the rainbow glow. All these chemicals are coming out of the bottom of these streams where these kids were playing. Do you allow your children anywhere near these streams now?”
EPA Chief Michael Reagan: “I will not. I am a father of nine. I think we should all agree that we wish this act did not happen. An ‘accident’ has occurred. And as a result some of our creeks and our streams have pollution in them.

Reagan labeled the toxic chemical explosion an “accident” in the clip. The explosion of the toxic chemical mushroom cloud was actually planned, discussed and executed after derailment. It is not yet clear to us who participated in that discussion. It is possible that the EPA was involved in that decision that poisoned the entire area.
In February, Michael Reagan and the governor of Ohio drank tap water in town. That’s a bold step!
But don’t let your kids play in the creek!
