NAWC’s letter to the EPA regarding PFAs

The National Association of Water Companies (NAWC) and its members are pleased to offer this comment letter regarding the agency’s proposal to designate PFOA and PFOS as CERCLA hazardous substances.

NAWC members work on a daily basis to protect families and communities across the nation from the dangers posed by PFAS chemicals. While NAWC appreciates that EPA in this proposed rulemaking is seeking to protect public health and the environment from the risk of PFAS, the approach EPA has chosen in this proposal is of great concern to regulated water and wastewater companies.
