What is perchlorate?

Perchlorate is both a naturally occurring and man-made chemical. Most of the perchlorate manufactured in the United States is used as the primary ingredient of solid rocket propellant. Wastes from the manufacture and improper disposal of perchlorate-containing chemicals are increasingly being discovered in soil and water. Additional information on perchlorate is available at http://water.epa.gov/drink/contaminants/unregulated/perchlorate.cfm.
