“…zero-emission…is a crime against humanity.”

“The past 150 years show that affordable and reliable energy is the key to prosperity.

Status of PFOA and PFOS regulation in drinking water

In February 2020, EPA announced that it is proposing to regulate both PFOA and PFOS under the SDWA—a critical step as the agency continues its efforts to protect drinking water and public health nationwide. This preliminary determination is a step toward providing state and local communities with key information about PFOA and PFOS in drinking water. In the proposal, EPA is also asking for information and data on other PFAS substances, as well as seeking comment on potential monitoring requirements and regulatory approaches EPA is considering for PFAS chemicals. If the positive regulatory determination is finalized, the agency would begin the process to establish a national primary drinking water regulation for PFOA and PFOS.” click here
