EPA Incorporates Society Recommendations in Landmark PFAS Regulation

Your substances


The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued a landmark regulation to set exposure limits for several per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) substances including PFOS and PFOAS found in drinking water.

The proposed regulation sets an aggressive limit for these PFAS and their mixtures and acknowledges effects at extremely low levels by proposing a health-based Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCGL) of zero. This is the first time the government has regulated a new chemical in drinking water in more than 30 years.
