(CNN/KRON)—A new report says millions of Americans are drinking tap water contaminated with Chromium-6 which can cause cancer.

The chemical was featured in the 2000 movie “Erin Brockovich.”

The EPA never set a specific limit for chromium-6 in drinking water.

There’s scientific uncertainty on the safe levels and long-term consequences.

The new report says the tap water of 218 million Americans contains unsafe levels.

It also found that Oklahoma, Arizona and California had the highest average levels.
