Water utilities should be prepared for media and customer inquiries stemming from the latest in the series of articles about water from The Guardian and Consumer Reports published on Sept. 24 entitled “Why dangerous ‘forever chemicals’ are allowed in US drinking water”. The article talks about the lack of consistent regulation of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in the United States. Among the quotes in the article is one attributed to Brian Ronholm, Consumer Reports’ director of food policy, saying, “The EPA hasn’t taken a science-based approach to this issue. It’s imperative for Congress to pass legislation that establishes PFAS limits in drinking water.” Water utilities with questions can take advantage of the AWWA Briefing on PFAS and other materials available at awwa.org/pfas . Questions about PFAS can directed to Chris Moody , AWWA’s regulatory technical manager, or Greg Kail , AWWA’s director of communications.
