Studies have shown that triclosan can combine with chlorine in our tap water to make chloroform gas. The EPA classifies this gas as a probable human carcinogen…you like brushing your teeth with chloroform gas? One study even showed that triclosan was broken down into dioxins in river water (link to the study) because of the presence of sunlight. So mixing this wonderful chemical with water, either inside or outside of the house, results in toxins thought to be carcinogenic to us humans (and probably other creatures)…sounds perfectly safe, right?
