PFAS: Billions At Stake For Companies Under EPA’s Proposed Drinking Water Standard
On March 14, 2023, the EPA proposed drinking water standards for several types of PFAS at levels that are at the lowest possible testing limit for laboratories. If the regulations pass, the EPA will pursue companies that it alleges polluted at levels above the limits and all fifty states will be required to pursue companies for cleanup costs in every state in the nation.
The regulations will trigger federal and state enforcement actions, costly remediations, and private citizen lawsuits for personal injury, property devaluation, medical monitoring and cleanup. Even just one such enforcement action could cost companies hundreds of thousands or millions of dollars. Knowing now what lies ahead is your best protection to minimize losses.
