In April, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) finalized the long-awaited maximum contaminant levels (MCLs) for six PFAS chemicals and laid out the implementation timelines for monitoring and compliance. Less than two weeks later, the EPA released a final ruling designating two PFAS chemicals (PFOA and PFOS) as hazardous substances under the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA). Both actions are expected to face numerous lawsuits that could delay implementation.

In this Quarterly Review:

  • PFAS MCLs and CERCLA designation mark new chapter in addressing contaminants as more lawsuits to follow
  • Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act funding for State Revolving Fund programs picks up steam
  • Mounting financial impacts of climate events become increasingly evident for water sector
  • Upcoming Supreme Court rulings and 2024 elections pivotal for U.S. water industry
