Protect Our Drinking Water from Toxics

I support a strong, enforceable national drinking water standard to require cleanup of PFAS (per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances) contamination and restore safe drinking water to every community affected by this toxic crisis.

PFAS are estimated to be in the drinking water of 110 million people in the U.S. alone. These chemicals are linked to cancers, kidney disorders and decreased immunity. Despite this, there is no national standard for how much of these chemicals can be in water.

I support a 1ppt MCL for total PFAS chemicals to protect our drinking water from this toxic contamination.
