The U.S. Congress is considering H.R. 535 (the PFAS Action Act) which would require Public Water Supplies and Wastewater Agencies to be responsible for the cleanup of PFAS contaminants that have been introduced to the environment through our treatment efforts. This is a rapidly evolving issue at both the national and state level and we want to make sure you are kept abreast of it as it unfolds.


Linked below is AWWA’s position on the issue as well as that of our other water sector partners. Please feel free to reach out to your elected representatives in the US House of Representatives to provide your opinion related to the issue.  


Thanks  John
