The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) released a position statement recently on the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) review to determine whether to set a maximum containment level (MCL) for Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA).
Position of the Members of the National Association of Water Companies on PFOS/PFOA Regulation:
Statement from Robert Powelson, NAWC president and chief executive officer:
“The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) urges the EPA to complete the process of determining whether to set a maximum containment level for PFOS and PFOA as soon as possible. Further, as NAWC member companies do their part to ensure the drinking water they deliver to customers meets the standards that have been set, it is imperative that the EPA hold those responsible for the PFAS pollution accountable and require them to cover the cost of treatment and site clean-up.”
