US EPA introduces stringent regulations on PFAS chemicals in public water systems #

The US Environmental Protection Agency has implemented new regulations on perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in public water systems. These regulations aim to limit PFAS levels, which have been linked to various health issues. The regulations require utilities to test and notify the public about PFAS levels above the new standard and reduce levels within five years. However, the regulations do not apply to well water. Critics argue that the burden should be on polluters to reduce PFAS pollution at the source. Consumers can take steps to limit PFAS exposure, such as testing their water and using water filters.
