Re: [Histonet] Periodic acid vs environment
There are no silly questions, only things people know or don't know.
I have never heard that flushing periodic acid is a problem. I presume it
would fairly rapidly encounter reducing agents and lose its excess oxygen,
converting to an iodide. There is a shortage of iodine compounds away from
the sea (hence historical goitre), so I think the amount flushed would have
little effect. Check your local municipal water supply company if you have
to know for sure.
