The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has long promised -- and so far failed -- to set safety standards for PFAS "forever chemicals" and address widespread drinking water contamination across the country.
Just this week the agency designated $1 billion of Infrastructure Bill funds to help local communities address PFAS. The EPA also published health advisories on four major PFAS chemicals. These advisories warn that PFAS is unsafe at near-zero levels.
While these are important steps in the right direction, the advisories aren’t enforceable, and communities have already waited decades for action.
It’s time for Congress to address the huge public health problem impacting the drinking water of communities across the country by passing the PFAS Action Act.
Everyone deserves clean water. Urge your senators to pass the PFAS Action Act and protect our drinking water from toxic chemicals!
