The EPA issued the first national standard for limiting 'forever chemicals' in drinking water, aiming to safeguard 100 million people from PFAS exposure.

The Environmental Protection Agency's new rule establishes the first-ever legally enforceable national standard for six types of per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) found in drinking water to protect approximately 100 million people. This decision is described as the EPA's most significant action on PFAS to date and expects to prevent severe illness and death for many Americans by reducing their exposure.
