NACWA Preparing Letter on PFAS; New Advocacy 'One-Pager' Available
Following the announcement by U.S. EPA Administrator Michael Regan during Water Week about the formation of a new EPA Council on PFAS, NACWA is preparing a letter to the Council’s co-chairs – EPA’s Principal Deputy Assistant Administrator for the Office of Water Radhika Fox and EPA Region 1’s Acting Administrator Deb Szaro – highlighting the Association’s priorities and recommendations for federal next steps on addressing PFAS.
One of the Council’s near-term tasks is to release a document within 100 days outlining its priority recommendations, including which actions to elevate from EPA’s existing PFAS Action Plan.
NACWA has been closely tracking the multi-pronged Action Plan and recently developed an updated Clean Water Advocacy Asks “one-pager” in collaboration with WEF. This document aims to provide a status update on important actions EPA is considering that could impact the clean water sector and outline key advocacy asks for the clean water sector on PFAS.
We hope utilities find this resource useful and encourage anyone with questions to reach out to Emily Remmel, NACWA’s Regulatory Director.
