PFAS Regulation for Water Advances Through State Actions
The U.S. regulatory environment addressing PFAS has picked up pace over the last two months. On 29 May 2019, the State of New Hampshire filed a lawsuit against Per- and Polyfluoroalkyl Substances (PFAS) producers.
Additional regulatory activity includes new rules introduced in New Jersey and Vermont that set maximum concentration levels (MCL) of less than 20 parts per trillion (ppt) for a selection of PFAS compounds. Legal actions have also been taken against PFAS producers.
